You have traveled a thousand miles
Have seen the British isles

You fought a thousand battles
You remained proud

You have said a thousand words
As much as your lips allowed

You have cried a thousand tears
In time of luck and fears

You have smiled a million times
Fought against crime

You embraced the world
The world embraced you

You have loved
As much as you have been loved

So much desires but little time

Walk towards the light
No more need to fight

Smile one more time
Shine bright

Your story is told
Your fingertips feel cold

This is where your journey ends

Dear soldier it’s time to kiss goodbye
