THE NAMES ARE GONE

  The faces are still there
Through a vague haze
But the names are gone
Erased from my mind

  Is this from time
Itís been thirty five years
Is this from age
Iím getting no younger
Oh where are the names

  How can I forget
Something so important
These were boys and men
Who gave their all
So many years ago

  I remember the few
Their names, faces and voices
That were closest to me
To the others I have forgotten
Please forgive me
