Have you ever seen a warrior's tear
slip past their formidable helm?
the glint of a hurtling spear
that can shatter the stoniest heart
like the plea from a loftier realm
that a spirit of love may impart.

If you chance to hear that veteran sob
the fate of a comrade is sealed,
an enemy soldier has finished the job,
another fierce drumbeat was stilled--
a hero is carried home on his shield
as the halls of Valhalla are filled.
