The Mission !

The Mission

A Boy of 19 and he was so far from home
To fight for God and Country - But he did not fight alone.

But unlike some lucky others- This one did not go home!
Instead he lays at Petersburg, - His name is on a stone.

The stone is fallen now ,like he -Being swallowed up by time.
To make sure that he’s not forgot -This mission shall be mine.

To fix his Stone , Stand it Upright
Give back His Name - The Day - The Fight.

Stand his Marker- YES ! MEND THAT STONE !
Then-- go find another,-- for he did not fight alone!
