Here's a poem I found that I found rather fitting. I altered it slightly to fit our dwarven cleric.

I never dreamed it would be me,
My name for all eternity,
Recorded here at this hallowed place,
Alas, my name, no my more face.

"In the line of duty," I hear them say;
My family now the price will pay.
My dented mail stained with their tears;
We only had those few short years.

The armor no longer on my chest,
I sleep now in eternal rest.
My flail I pass to those behind,
And I pray they keep this thought in mind.

I never dreamed it would be me,
And with heavy heart and bended knee;
I ask for all here from the past,
Dear Moradin, let my name be the last.
