In Loving Memory of Willie [Bell]

Sleep on dear Willie in a soldier's grave
T'is been your fate to fall
You gave your life for those you loved
And for your country's call

Some where in France in peace you lie
The spot we cannot tell
But in our hearts of days gone by
Fond memories ever dwell

The midnight stars will ever shine
On loved ones where the lie,
Yet there is hope to meet again
And never say good-bye

Deep down in our hearts his fond memory is cherished
He oft fills our thoughts as in silence we sit
But we are proud when we think of the way that he perished
He died for his country in doing his bit
