I did not get to see, before you left,

The terror in your eyes and fear

You hid from those who, here at home,

Were left to wonder how you were;

But guided by some unseen power,

Your bloody footsteps left an imprint

I could follow through the dark,

And I will come to guide you home

If I am bid to take your place

to carry freedom into brighter fields

Than those you fought, and promise

To protect the sacrifice you made.                                 —Dennis Smith
