In Eternal Rest

I never dreamed it would be me.
My name for all of eternity.
Recorded here at this hallowed place.
Alas, my name, no more my face.
"In the Line of Duty", I hear them say.
My family now the price to pay.
My folded flag stained with their tears.
We only had those few short years.
The badge no longer on my chest.
I sleep now in eternal rest.
My sword I pass to those behind
and pray they keep this thought in mind.
I never dreamed it would be me
and with a heavy heart and bent knee.
I ask for all here from the past...
Dear God, let my name be the last.
