Where are they?

Where are the soldiers now ?
The people who fought to protect our land.
The people who gave their lives for us.
The people who took command ?

Where did their body's go ?
Did their spirit and souls go with them ?
Do they still hear bullets, cries, and screams ?
Or do they sleep peacefully, and dream good dreams ?

Do they wonder how we are ?
Or if they are still loved?
Can they still hear us?
Even from up above.

Do they wonder who they are?
And where they are? and why?
Do they know the larks are still singing?
Even though they're in the sky.
