Rest easy, sleep well my brothers
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell…
The young dead soldiers do not speak. Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses: who
has not heard them? They have a silence that speaks for them at night and when the clock
counts. They say: We were young. We have died. Remember us. They say: We have done
what we could but until it is finished it is not done. They say: We have given our lives but until
it is finished no one can know what our lives gave. They say: Our deaths are not ours: they
are yours; they will mean what you make them. They say: Whether our lives and our deaths
were for peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say, it is you who must say this. We
leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning. We were young, they say. We have died.
