Lift him high
to the sky


raise him
on your shoulders


rest his coffin
by your head


your brother's dead
carry me


he said
once in jest


raise him steady
off you go


hold firm
for tears will flow


his favoured song
Over the Rainbow


tones you in
we all follow


gutted empty
feeling hollow


full of sorrow

hand in hand


tearful eyes
hold him steady




keep him close
to heart and head


carry me
he once said


lay him gently
let his coffin lay


let him sleep
in God's rest


you have given all
you have done him proud


you have carried high
the best.


Sleep on
loving brother


dearest son
rest as you can


our close-knit kin
our young brave man.
