Salutation #102

(Piercing the Heavens)

If I am silent,
if I do not speak of their names,
it does not mean I have forgotten.
My silence is not ignorance.

My silence is an observance.

At the breaking of every moment, it longs to speak!

It longs for justice...
It longs for peace...

Lest we forget.
Lest we forget.

O when shall the wounding stop
and the healing begin!
O beloved Soul of Army -
when is our last fading away?
