The Guardian

Amid the families, I am a myth
Amid the soldiers, I am their testable fate
Amid the ancestors, I am a reality
Amid the first shots, my services are called

Amid the regiment, I follow dutifully
Before their deaths, I pray for them
At their deaths, I carry their weight
Amid lost souls, I am their patron

Amid the darkness, the light for all
Amid crying relations, another one who cries
Amid the demons of earth, fearless angel
The duty lies on my shoulders
For I am a patriot
