The Poetic Plumber

I stand before you all today

But not one eye can see my way

My time arrived, to leave this earth

A fact so planned, to every birth

It happened where I had to go

My torch for life was so aglow

I transferred while in uniform

Protecting freedom, through a storm

Should I resent I died for you

Not on my life, red white and blue

Please help my family through each day

Tell all my friends, try not to stray

And of the country I did love

Do think of me, through God above

Your memories, brought forth this day

Send love to us, who could not stay
