Dream of the Brave Man

Then out spake brave Horatius, The Captain of the Gate:
“To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds?”

There is a dream brave men share. To sit alone, exhausted from the fight, to watch the enemy come into range as those he guards slip over the hill behind him.

To know every second he buys them is golden. His entire life down to these minutes. This is the end brave men dream of.
