The Wall

There is no place upon the wall
For one who gave his life for all.

Agent Orange in far away lands
Put a Soldier in the Good Lord's hands.

Many years he screamed within
Not knowing that his life must end.

He was called and served his country well,
Experiences....he would never tell.

Ten, Twenty, Thirty years
A silent killer brought us tears.

Even on the eve of death
Regret was never on his breath.

He gave his life for one and all,
But there is no room upon the wall.
