And Now We Say Goodbye Great sadness fills our hearts today as pipes and drums, in slow march play. A comrade's fallen by the way, And now we say goodbye. This hero to the very end Was more than just a casual friend, Who would a stranger's life defend, And now we say goodbye But we shall cherish, all our days, The character this life portrayed With sacrifice so freely made, And now we say goodbye. The hand salute, o'er Stars and Stripes, And distant skirl of highland pipes, Give last farewell with hero's rights, And now we say goodbye. While here on Earth, you gave your best. Now in the Master's arms you rest. T'is by your memory we are blessed. And now we say goodbye. Howard Garrison Yates @ July 2006
