I paused beside each granite
And fought back my despair
When finding one just marked, "UNKNOWN"
And laid my flowers there.
Unknown? That cannot
You had a father, mother too;
A wife whose ears still flow free
Siblings, children who all loved you.
You're called by many names,
Courage, Honor, Truth and Duty.
You still live on, you did not end.
Your name is Music, Love, and Beauty.
