they must be never forgotten

these men, these women, these


who by their hundreds died

that others by their thousands live

inscribe their names on every beating heart

in ceaseless honour to a love too strong for even death to still


they must never be forgotten

these who by their thousands died


not as warriors who in battle

fought their foe on equal terms

but victims of a faceless evil in a battle with no rule

but bloodshed

senseless and brutal


they must never be forgotten

this enemy, who from the darkness fights


bringing terrors beyond imagination

to a people seeking peace

may the God whom they abhor have mercy on their souls

their now mortal foe cannot


They Must Never Be Forgotten
