A Lonely Soul

CAN YOU SEE ME; MY SOUL IS AGLOW.
CAN YOU HEAR ME; MY VOICE IS CRYING O UT.
CAN YOU FEEL ME; MY ARMS ARE REACHING OUT.
CAN YOU TOUCH ME; MY BODY IS ACHING.
LONELY LONELY IS MY SOUL.

I CANNOT DIE,
I CANNOT REST,
I AN UNABLE TO LIE DOWN,
I DID MY VERY BEST.

MY BUDDIES, MY PALS, THOSE STILL ALIVE.
THEY WENT HOME, SOME NO LEGS, ONLY THIGHS.
NO ARMS ON SOME, JUST STUMPS,
BUT THEY REMEMBER, FREEDOM CANE HIGH.

I'M LEFT OVER HERE ALL ALONE
JUST A SHELL OF A MAN.
MY SOUL IS RESTLESS AND SCREAMING;
PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME HERE
B RING ME HOME WHERE I BELONG.

I SEE IN THE DISTANCE A MOUND
THE CROSS I SEE THE NEARER I GET
THERE'S A NAME ON IT; NO NOT MINE
MAYBE THE NEXT ONE DOWN THE LINE.
NO PLACE TO LIE FOR THIS LONELY SOUL.
