My helmet, now a halo,
Wings replace my chute,
to fly amongst the eagles
no soldier would dispute.

No aircraft is needed to take me to the sky,
Your prayers from below have lifted me so high.
My spirit is my engine no need to refuel, no runway
required, a rainbow’s edge will do.

No need for maps or compasses,
My angels are my guides,
Their strength and love have gifted me to soar the
Sky with pride.

The heavens here are endless, my soul’s now free to roam,
There is no need to cry my friends.
This Airborne Trooper found his home.
