by Samantha McGraw

Young warrior tall and strong
Battered by time and life
Softened by fear
Weakened by loss

Young warrior mind tattered and worn
Holding quilt as baby to mother
Breathing last breath
Grasping to life

Old warrior lying still
Hearing last sounds of birds
Wings gently flapping
Casting his spirit into eternity 

Young warrior renewed
Everlasting reward for battles fought
Tears shed for lives lost
Becomes rejoicing for souls found
