There's a single yellow rose,
that I put on your headstone.
Every day I come to visit,
stare at your picture on my phone.
We were sent to war together,
always went on patrol at night.
I can remember a few times,
when we almost lost that fight.
That night that you lost your life,
it tore my world apart,
You were always like a brother,
that remains deep in my heart.
So I place a single yellow rose,
on top of your headstone.
And I will never forget you,
I keep your picture on my phone.
