4. You Will Always Live On
You will always live on
In my mind and my heart
I remember the days
Since last we did part
I think of the child
That loved to play in the sand
And when we walked
Always holding my hand
You'd say hold onto me Mommy
Don't let me get lost
I would hold on foever
I would pay any cost
But I could not be with you
I could not be there
When the world took you from me
Returned only a prayer
The pain lives forever
My heart cannot mend
I'll die a little each day
Till I hold you again

5. Memorial Plaque
A gift of stone and bronze
Built with loving hearts
For the mothers and families
Of the heroes that gave their lives
So this land would stay free
Only they could miss them
More than we
