Armistice Day


Shoulder to shoulder
They march to the sound
In honour of loved ones
At peace with the ground

Veterans of war
They stand valiant and proud
A sea of Red Poppies
They march past the crowd

Memories of comrades
They fondly recall
Names etched in stone
On the Cenotaph wall

They gave up their lives
For the love of their nation
Brother, Son and Father
A well loved relation

Never to be forgotten
They're up there with the rest
We Will Remember Them
For they truly were the best
