Here’s a poem I’ve written in honour of our fallen veterans who have served us so courageously.
This month, this day, this hour, this grace, this place,
Before our feet, you rest eternally.
Fought to seek freedom for the human race,
Loved and were loved, you lie in sweet memory.
‘Fore armistice was signed, you’ve been long dead;
That destroyed the hopes of your family.
By fire you were scorched, blood from you shed;
No one can discern your identity.
Yet Legacy lets sacrifice live on,
As peace and freedom shine throughout the land.
The faults of the past, must not be passed on,
Lest all is wasted from your works of hand.
Poppies mark our hearts, we stand in grave honour,
Before the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
