Seventy-five years since World War II
Those who fought are now so few
Medals they once wore with pride
Are now passed down, as each one died.
The Holocaust invoked such fear
Suffered ones still shed a tear
By flashbacks of a brutal time,
Forever deemed to be a crime.
No echo sound as bullets flew
Close to death is all they knew,
Green grass now grows where once was mud,
Where soldiers fell and shed their blood.
The importance of Remembrance Day
Brings us memories, as we pray
That with the guidance of God’s grace
Our world becomes a peaceful place.
Dedicated to all who served, and their families.
