Unknown Soldier

The call of assembly long overdue 
Named the forgotten from ages thru
from countless wars of eras ascended
Pain still fresh, wounds never mended
The screams before the darkness took
Their day blacked without another look  
Scattered bones in foreign lands 
Dug up my diligently by God own hands
Now fierce warriors all stood by
summoned spirits filled the sky 
Hobnailed sandals, barefooted, steel toe boot
Marched in unison without dispute
Heavens roster penned the missing and lost
Those who fought valiant with a cost

Foes in combat never friends
united at the battle end
Angels kissed the blood stained brow  
awarded each their sacrifice vow
Hasta pura the Romans’ spear held high  
A golden Katana bestowed the fearless Samurai 
The “Sword of the Sea” the Chinese swayed 
While a Viking warrior sailed away 
an Apache fighter reclaimed his land
the ancient Maori received his brand 
The Medal of Honor secured its place
On innocent faces who left no trace
fought to the end with unseen cries
fought to the death by infinite lies
Rest well Soldier, you nameless soul
your seeds finally planted in fields of gold  
Fallen heroes with deeds overlooked 
Final reward in life’s eternal book

And the widow obliged to raise their children never received a monument nor a tear.
