I didn't really like my first version so I re-wrote it.

The piper plays a Lament
Eight bear the weight
Of the Coffin draped
In the Red and White
And She weeps

At the slow march they step
For the Comrade who's fallen
The Journey begins
For the True North is calling
And She Weeps.

Always accompan'd
By a Brother in Arms
Never alone on the
Last Journey Home
And She Weeps.

Soon the roar, then the leap
To the Heavens,
Homing West to the setting sun
Chasing the afterglow into the night
Straight on til morning
When Dawn sheds her light
For Canada awaits
Her Hero, Her Child
And She Weeps.

Yes it is very fair, but just a bit too much Canadian wink.gif

Damn straight it's Canadian and if I were Brit or Dutch, or American it would be that. I think and pray to my Creator everyday for all the troops in Afghanistan they are never far from my thoughts. I Love my Country as much as you Love yours and I am the first to admit that I am EXTREMELY BIASED when it comes to Canada. thumbs_up.gif thumbs_up.gif thumbs_up.gif smile.gif

THe Maple Leaf Forever.
