Deeply mourned.
Gone in the pride of his youth and his glory,
Far from his home and the land of his birth,
He lay down his life like a hero
In response to his country's call;
There are some who'll remember and miss him,
Though he was only a private, that's all.
In a soldier's grave he is sleeping,
Our loved one, the dearest and best;
In our hearts we will miss him for ever,
Though we know he is only at rest.

But for ever he will be remembered by me.
