Millions  of dreams have  gone astray

Because  of wars we  fight each day

When  does  it end,  shall we survive

What  must we do  to keep alive ?

So  many  innocents to  save

By  heroes who have  filled each grave

And  what of all  the families

Left  behind with  but memories ?

Of  fathers,  sons and daughters  too

Who  gave themselves  in lieu of you

Bless  them all  and promise to be

Defenders  of their  sanctity !

Hail to our heroes great or small

Thanks for safety they bring us all

And here’s to those who sacrifice

To make our lives comfy and nice

Kudoes  all who save this nation

Giving cause for celebration.

The  warriors who braved the fight

And share with us the country’s might

May God bless them and keep them safe

Do to their actions  we have faith

For after  all,  the  same as we

They follow rules that keep us free !

Today’s  the  day we  do recall

Our heroes brave who scaled the wall

Their actions  all did set us free

They  led  us  on to victory

Remember well how many died

To free us from old Satan’s  pride !

Oh to be the hero who lived to see the sun

Early in the morning after the battle’s won

Or to feel the wonder that follows in the morn

Now that all is quiet and hope can be reborn.

Sadly in the shadows, their voices silent now

Those who can’t return or will ever take their bow

Dreaming in a twilight that will not rise nor set

Those men that we’ll remember and cannot forget  !

My tears are for the many men

Who never will go home again

Like those who pledged to give it all

In battle’s heat as they did fall.

Oh Lord in Heaven hear my plea

They gave their lives for me and Thee

Their sacrifice was far too great

With rewards that arrive too late !

 

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN ( 2017 ) 2017/08/18

Her mountains rose up from the sea

While sunshine showed her true glory

Her rivers flowed upon this earth

The nation prospered for its worth.

Her people stood there by her side

They lived and fought and too soon died

The grandest place this world has seen

The saddest words “what might have been ” !

Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?
