Remembrance Day 2018

A CENTURY'S TALE

One Hundred years, since the Great War ceased
The need for troops had now decreased,
Until Hitler tried to reign supreme
And peace became a shattered dream.

So many lives cut short too soon
When battles brought a pall of doom,
Young boys who bled and fought like men
Would never see their home again.

Years have gone, and yet today
Our men and women still may pay
As conflicts spread world wide,
And pleas for peace are just denied.

Remember those who went before
Our freedom earned in a war
With tears shed amongst the din
And loss of life, is no one’s win.

Pay respect to those who died,
Lives washed away with the tide,
Buried in an unmarked grave,
A poppy honours all who gave.

Canadian flag

Dedicated to all who served, and their families.

Jacqueline Black - 2018
Wife of Sgt W.P. Black (deceased)
