The Last Post~by Patrick Kevin O’Shea


 

 

The Last Post

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, flower, outdoor and nature

He stands to attention
With others in line
To bury his comrade 
His best friend over time
Nineteen years old
His pal died in this war
Fighting for freedom
For his country and more
This soldiers last stance
As his body is laid
This hero’s last post
As the Bugle is played
He remembers in past
Fun and laughter galore
Great moments they shared
But alas sadly no more
His eyes start to well
As his tears turn to cry
For ever my best friend
This final goodbye
As he stands and salutes
Aside his best friends grave
This hero’s last post
As the Bugle is played
