Soldier Turned into a Statue

Soldier Turned Into a Statue

Saw some soldier turned into a statue,
Who was brave in battle that is true;
Around his waste, he wore a belt
And on one knee he now knelt.

With hand had been wiping his brow;
How he survived, we wondered how
After going in to bring last body out;
Saving souls is what war is all about.

Body had part of it's leg missing
And death he had  just felt it kissing;
Last time we looked he was still alive;
So fortunate for him that he did survive.
