VETERAN'S 60th ANNIVERSARY

Remembrance Day 2005

All's Quiet

SILENCE now for Sixty years
We've put aside long felt fears
When World War was all we knew
And loss of loved ones, daily grew.

The water roared and waves were high
As troops landed on a shore to die
Or as they waited, in trenches deep
Fighting for a piece of land, to keep.

As the call went out to leave their land
Perhaps to die on foreign sand
The Allied troops together strong
Bravely fought against what was wrong.

They lay in graves so far from home
Their families shattered; now all alone
Lives given for a strong belief
Their time cut short and all too brief.

Six decades since you set free
Countries surrounded by a sea
Of turmoil, strife and in fear
Of losing all that they held dear.

So, to those of you who took part
Who defended us with all your heart,
We thank you and treasure the peace you gave
And the freedom fought so hard to save.
