Though I never met you,           and we spoke not a word
I'll never forget you      through stories that I heard
For you, unknown brother      my baby's mother's pain
Your soul is in heaven    but your memory remains

   Unknown,              unknown brother
       I'll meet you     some day
   Unknown,              uknown brother
   We'll walk through fields where children play

Verse:

  Your eyes shined bright when you were a kid
  Your sisters loved you and all that you did
  Big brother, big brother, don't worry a bit
  Your flame has not faded since the day it was lit
