Here you will find the Poem You'll Tell Her, Won't You? of poet Anonymous Americas
You'll tell her, won't you? Say to her I died As a brave soldier should - true to the last; She'll bear it better if a though of price Comes in to stay her, the first shock o'erpast! You'll tell her, won't you? Show her how I lay Pressing the pictured lips I loved so well; And how my last thoughts floated far away, To home and her, with love I could not tell. You'll tell her, won't you? - not how hard it was To give up life - for her sake so dear; Nay, nay, not so. Say 'twas a noble cause, And I did die for it without a tear. You'll tell her, won't you? She'll be glad to know Her soldier stood undaunted, true as steel, His heart with her, his bosom to the foe, When the blow struck no human power could break. You'll tell her, won't you? Say, too, we shall meet In God's Hereafter, where our love shall grow More holy for this parting, and more sweet, And cleansed from every stain it knew below.
