Walk among the gardens of stone
evenly spaced white rows as far as the eye can see
Watch the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown
honoring the nameless heroes memory
See the small flags flutter here and there
faded by years of rain and sun
Hear a somber gathering murmur a solemn prayer
for a fallen hero whose journey's done
Walk softly by an old women
bent and scarred by the unforgiving years
She pauses to remember what might have been
her sad eyes filled with unrequited tears
And when you leave these hallowed acres
where the stone flowers grow
Remember the fallen peace makers
who's sacrifice bought us our tomorrow
