The Vietnam Wall was before me
and suddenly I could not breathe;
If I leaned forward really close
oh! the faces I could see.
Do you see the young man on the left
the one with eyes so clear;
I wonder if I leaned closer
what stories I would hear?
The dark haired man who is kneeling down
with tear drops in his eyes;
I wonder, what were his thoughts
moments before he died?
To some of us, these are just names
reflections on a wall;
But to others, just to caress a face once more
they would give everything they own.
These men and women gave their lives
many years ago;
But they live on in the hearts of loved ones
and with their names engraved on this wall.
