Weep, for another has been lost;
Weep, for his heart has now been stilled;
Weep for a life that has been tossed away,
A heart yet unfulfilled.

Weep, for his young body’s shattered;
Weep, for it lies beneath Earth’s crust;
Weep for his blood has now been splattered
And is mingled with the dust.

Weep, for no longer straight he stands;
Weep, for he’ll never more be seen;
Weep for his blood is on our hands,
And we shall nevermore be clean.
