A Nation Fell Silent - Poem by Phil Soar

A nation fell silent, no audible sound
A nation said thank you, to those on the ground
The ones who we grieved for, the many that fell
Those loved ones whose lives were a permanent hell

A nation fell silent, for a minute or so
A time to remember, a nations echo
A moment reflected in so many ways
For those who gave all, during those yesterdays

A nation fell silent, the whole world did too
Remembering sons & daughters, fathers, mothers, and you
Without them, things might have been awful I guess
A world with no future
A world in a mess.
