We stood there in the silence
That only comes with tears
We knelt beside a brother lost
Who no longer shared our fears

We wept again that morning
For a brother gone away
There was only fighting left for us
What more was there to say

But as we turned to leave him
We prayed God found him fair
For only God could know the price
We paid to leave him there
