~
Garlands upon his grave
 And flowers upon his hearse,
And to the tender heart and brave
 The tribute of this verse. 

 His was the troubled life,
 The conflict and the pain,
The grief, the bitterness of strife,
 The honor without stain. 

 Like Winkelried, he took
 Into his manly breast
The sheaf of hostile spears, and broke
 A path for the oppressed. 

 Then from the fatal field
 Upon a nation's heart
Borne like a warrior on his shield!--
 So should the brave depart. 

 Death takes us by surprise,
 And stays our hurrying feet;
The great design unfinished lies,
 Our lives are incomplete. 

 But in the dark unknown
 Perfect their circles seem,
Even as a bridge's arch of stone
 Is rounded in the stream. 

 Alike are life and death,
 When life in death survives,
And the uninterrupted breath
 Inspires a thousand lives. 

 Were a star quenched on high,
 For ages would its light,
Still travelling downward from the sky,
 Shine on our mortal sight. 

 So when a great man dies,
 For years beyond our ken,
The light he leaves behind him lies
 Upon the paths of men.
~
By Henry Longfellow

if you read the poem while listening to the song there'll probably be tears.
