Remembrance Day 2007

We Carry On

Road side bombs, bullets flying,
Soldiers wounded, comrades dying,
Vehicles shattered like broken dreams
A torrid sun shines down its beams.

Assisting all who they meet
Hidden danger in the dust and heat,
Insurgent force's mortar blasts
Make ones days their very last.

Shrapnel does not discriminate who
Media representatives, interpreters too,
Experience the pain that war carries
Some of their own, they've had to bury.

Field hospitals have had to bear
Bloodied bodies that require care,
Doctors, nurses dressed in white
Saving those who had to fight.

New rows of crosses or headstones
Those never to again come home,
New veterans, now paving the way
We honour, and for the families pray.

World War soldiers grow less each year
However, recognize the deep set fear
Our men and women confront today,
Life, too often is the price they pay.

Remember those who fought before,
Remember those still at war,
In our hearts they always stay
Wear a Poppy on Remembrance Day.
