Thank you for naming yours after our own,
Holding a bit of his being in place.
A name is a mask for a sojourning soul,
Nothingness left with a word for a face,
Knight of the night seeking honor alone.

Your kindness has given his memory a trace
Of the living, that he might by name still be known,
Undoing the darkness that death would make whole.
