{Drape The Flag Over My Casket} 



As I lost the war

that I was facing

but please deliver

this message to my

family and loved one’s

back in the states 


I am sorry that I

couldn’t make out

of this nightmare

but I’ll always be

flying with you

only from heaven

above now but I do

miss you and love

you all and please

don’t cry because

this military woman

is finally at peace

and they are shipping

my dog tags to you

please if you miss

me please hang them

around your neck

because I’ll be right

there waiting in your ? heart for you where

I’ve been the whole

time and I’m sorry

that I am not coming

back home to you all

but this is the sacrifice

that I made for you

all so you can continue

to have freedom 



But they’ll be handing

you my flag that was

drape over my casket

that you shall receive

when they place me

in the ground and I

know you will place

it in a case on the

mantle so you can

gracefully look at

after the pain ease’s

away from your hurting ? heart and as the guns

ring out one last

time before they

lower my casket in

the ground but it’s

a heroic salute calling

out for the fallen

sleeping soldiers that

couldn’t make it back

home to you besides

this way and please

forgive me because

I’ll be above watching

over you now and

I’ve got to go but I

do love you and

miss you so

much to 



And this sleeping

soldier is singing

off duty permanently

good~bye and please

don’t cry hoorah





Dedicated to all sleeping soldiers thank you for your services to our country and you paid the ultimate sacrifice with your life that we will be grateful for an eternity
