||A light is from our household gone,
The form we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home
which never can be filled.
He did not wait till he was fetched,
Although it's hard we know,
But while his country called him
He answered, "Yes, I'll go!"
From his broken-hearted Mother,
Father, Sisters, and Brother
