The Piper plays a Lament
Eight bear the weight
Of the Coffin draped
With the Red Maple Leaf.
And She weeps.

At the slow march they step
For a Comrade has fallen
The Journey begins
The Homeland is calling, and
Again She weeps.

Up the ramp moves the coffin
To rest in the belly
Of the giant grey bird.
With a Brother beside
Never alone, and
Again She weeps.

Soon the roar, then the leap
To the Heavens, the bird takes flight
Homing West to the setting sun
Chasing the afterglow into the night.
Straight on til the morrow
When dawn brings the light.
For Canada's awaiting
Her Hero, Her Child, and
Again She Weeps.
