In memory

We remember, remember
The fifth of  November
But cannot take the time
To honour those who have died
Fighting for our freedom
Protecting us
And our right to life

How quickly we forget
In times of peace
The boys and the girls
Who died for our dreams

May they rest in peace
May we never forget
That once upon a time
They were just like us

“So take two minutes of time”
“For the boys and the girls who go over”
And may we never forget
That they laid “their lives on the line”
So, “[i]n Peace may they rest
lest we forget why they died.
Take a pittance of time”*
