The bugle sounds its final call
  the echoes die away
darkness now has fallen
  although it is mid-day.

The flag is being folded
  to be given to your wife;
your children stand bewildered
  at this strange twist in life.

Another hero has fallen
  and now he lies at rest.
The world's a darker place now
  for he was one of the best.
