Remembrance Day 2021

A SYMBOL

A simple red flower, these past hundred years
Has honoured those who shed silent tears
Among the destruction that they found,
As comrades passed away, on foreign ground.

Our Veterans fought each World War
While recent ones increased the score
Of those whose lives were changed or lost,
Freedom coming at a pricey cost.

Worldwide and closer to home.
Names engraved upon a slab of stone
Tell a tale of heroes who gave it all
Fearlessly answering, their Nations call.

Each poppy worn on Remembrance Day
Is an unspoken word that allows us to say
Thank you to all who chose to fight,
As the Last Post echoes through the night.

Canadian flag

Dedicated to all who served, and their families.

Jacqueline Black - 2021
Wife of Sgt W.P. Black (deceased)
