Flying soldiers now on high... Such brave men for whom we cried |
Those men whose souls still soar today
And one I loved...Wore A Green Beret
Silver wings on my love's chest... He was but one of all our best
He claimed his dream... We screamed: "Hooray!"
When Michael won...His Green Beret
Ordained to go to: "No Man's Land"
Proclaimed as warrior... A gentle man
A man who loved... Who hoped... Who prayed
And he told me... "Don't be afraid"???
Each day I hoped... Each night I prayed
`Til Michael's shield fell Christmas day
On Easter morn... I mourned at last
Just one more cross... On Arlington's grass
"Take Silver Wings from our Hope Chest
My wings are golden... Now strong... Now bles't
Pack up your fears... Lock tears away... I'll cover you
Your Green Beret"
