Remembrance Day 2012

 

Destiny

Battleships, tanks; and planes in the sky
All carried troops prepared to die
In the name of Freedom.

We call them Veterans, those so brave,
Names faded now upon their grave
As families wept.

From the Great War to present day,
They gave their lives, not ones to say
I surrender.

Flags half mast as bugles blow
Graveyards echo, as we show
Respect they've earned.

How much more must we give?
So in harmony, we all can live
We just cry out for Peace.

Remember sacrifices that were made,
As time marches on, and memories fade
Proudly wear a "Poppy".

Jacqueline Black - 2012
