For You There Is No Wall

For you there is no Wall, there is only my fading
memories that grow weaker with time

These solemn fading memories are slightly
brightened by my nightmares in the night,
nightmares that recall the horror of your
deaths and the extreme sadness I feel
because I couldn't save you

For you there is no Wall, your deaths are
honored only in my fading memories. This
honor must not ever be lost but how do I
maintain the memories so very, very important

The nightmares are terrible but without them,
the honor of knowing you wonderful people
will be forever lost

My Scouts, my wonderful Montagnards, the honor
of fighting beside you is fading with my memory.

You gave so much to me and I couldn't save you

I feel I failed you so badly

Now my memory is fading and I am failing you even
more. If I forget you, my guilt will be unbearable

I pray the nightmares continue because without them,
I fear I will lose you and the honor you desire so
very much.
