David McLean

'-Sympathies on the great loss of your son, David..'
whose life would be given, not for vainglory or fame.
Who died for a cause, that was deemed to be just
That the darkness be lit with the strength of Man's love.
Though the seasons would turn men's deeds would live on
in those words of a poem -in those words of a song...
How their mothers would weep and their father would age
while the leaves on the willows would wither and fade.
'-In our memory ever cherished...' by all those whom you loved
And those dreams of your youth would lie broken and crushed...

..that line should have read '..and their fathers would age.'
