Remembrance Day

Remembering you by the poppy fields as red as blood

Sacrifice in the mud

The guns, the bombs and cruel barbed wire

The trenches, the food, the scorching fires

Your letter to me, I will keep close to my heart

I will never forget you, we will never part

The flag raised swiftly in the sky

Showing your courage where you might lie

The Last Post plays loud and clear

Now I feel as if you’re near

What have you been through?

I have no clue

But never, ever will I forget you
