Forevermore
(c)Dennis Johnson

The sun is setting as before
And hope is lost, forevermore.
All lost is faith of trueness be
At least, all faith is lost to me.

Nevermore will the sun be seeing
Any trust within my being.
I served my country, I heard the call
But I've been forgotten, perhaps by all.

Remember me! Come for me!
Let my eyes behold my family!
From morning's dawn to last twilight
I pray respite from one more night!

Now darkness has covered my lowered head
And I can but wish that I were dead.
The sun is setting as before
And hope is lost, forevermore.

Once sunshine and laughter filled my days,
But memories of that have become a haze.
I've been left in a land so far from home
There's no strength left to let my spirit roam.

The sun has set as it did before
And hope is lost forevermore.
