The Battle Ended ~ Erin van Niekerk

If I should die, think only this of me.
That I did my deeds,
But my battle is done.
With all the medals I have won.
I lie in the sun,
As the blood runs
I know it is the end of the song
As the sense of death is strong
I know my battle is ended
As I am descended
Down into the ground
