In memory of me wear this silver band,
and hold my world close to thee.
Remember the dreams I dreamed,
remember my laughter,
pray that more will come for me.
For I am a prisoner of war,
in an unknown world to me.
Where no dream can be made,
and for me all I have lies
in the band of silver you wear ... in memory of me.
