Lest We Forget

 

they must not be forgotten

these whose blood

 

whose tears

 

purchase our joys

who carry to their grave

 

honour

 

courage

valour

duty

 

horror

 

beyond imagining

whose lives have paid and pay again

too high a cost for what should not be

 

they must not be forgotten

these who live and die for other's gain,

these to whom a strangers life

has more value than their own

 

we owe no honour lower

than endless praise

 

we owe no memory shorter

than eternity

 

lest we forget

and call from life again

these whose lives have borne our cost
