Last Request

 Have You Ever Seen a Last Request?
 It Would Make Your Blood Run Cold.
 There Are a Few That Have Seen It,
 but They Are the Brave and the Bold.
 I Am Talking about Our Young Soldiers,
 Sent out to Fight the War
 but Viewing of the Last Request,
  Burrows Right down to Your  Very Core.
 It Says, "Please Tell My Family
 I Was Honorable and Brave to the End,
 I Did the Best I Thought I Could....
 Please Write it All in the Letter You Send.
 He Can No Longer Say a Word,
 the Request Is in His Eyes.
 So It's up to You to Tell What He Gave,
 as the Request Slowly Flickers.....
 And   Dies.
