May We Never Forget

“Their youth they gave for your life to save”

by

Mary Michael

(Daughter of a FEPOW)

 

Alone they stand within the crowd

Upright with head slightly bowed

Veteran’s Day here once again

Fewer now to share memory and pain

 

Memories abound within their head

Of comrades long ago lost or dead

They were so young and so very bold

Serving their country is what they were told

 

Leaving home and country for a foreign war

Never forgetting nor sharing all that they saw

So many not returning to be here today

For freedom the full price they did pay

 

But their brave and fighting spirit is still here

For they are the reason we now live without fear

They are reason for the freedom we now see

And they are the reason that we are still free

 

To the veterans there is so much we do owe

As unknowing about our daily lives we go

We live neither in fear, humble or meek

Thankful that our own language we still speak

 

Our National flag is waving so proud

Our National Anthem is sung so loud

For veterans today are the Heroes of War

Remember them still when they here are no more

 

If a veteran you happen to meet

Whether family or stranger in the street

Take the time for a thank you to say

Bless them all and not only on Veteran’s Day
