The death of a marine by marinecorps0405 Oct 25, 2005 category : Sadness, depression / about death I lay on the operating table. My chest cut open A MARINE DIED TODAY And he sat inside a cockpit telling stories of the past. Of a war he had fought in and the deeds that he had done, Of his exploits with his buddies, they were heros, everyone. And thought sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke, All his buddies listened carefully, for they knew whereof he spoke . He will not be mourned by many, just his children and his wife, For he lived an ordinary and quite uneventful life. Held a job and raised a family, quietly going his own way The sailor in the poem requests that no one cries at his death. Instead, he states, Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, when I embark. 14
