In Memoriam

Soldiers gather, to drink and chatter

about things that matter.

Of mates who lived short years ago, who loved and laughed, their hearts aglow.

Yet now who in death do rest, at what we the living take for granted each day.

And as evening falls we'll make a vow,

that in the morn our heads to bow,

in their fond memory - then and now.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young​
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow​
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted​
They fell with their faces to the foe

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old​
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn

 

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

 

We will remember them

Lest We Forget
