Glory - Poem by Rosemary Cormican

Take me to the grave of the unbidding soldier’s death
Where the sun will forever shine and gratitude shall seek no end
Let the life of the spirits our heroes fallen become still eternal
And more lively with each new dawn without the clashing of dusk
And free, able to go where soul’s content
Let be the receival of the heros' well deserved grace
Glory shall be theirs


The worthiness of their dutiful actions
And glorious loyalty shines through
As a nation is bonded forever
The willing death that has befallen them
One and all
Some only to been over seen and forgotten
I do not forget what you have done
And have come to give you glory


I cherish every moment of life
And always remember it is you who brought this to me
You who made this possible
You who made this happen
You have revealed the trust,
You have made loyalty apparent and not yet rare
And as a result our hearts are as one today
And will be forevermore
May God grant you glory


As time goes on
My token of sincerity grows ever so quickly
And the light shines on and through
As my debt to you, dear soldiers, grows ever so quickly
That now my gratitude to you is golden
Therefore, priceless
I owe beyond what I can ever repay
Glory is yours


You’ve lived and worked
You’ve strived and died
All for us
All for the future
I can now and always and for years yet unseen
Full-heartedly give you
Glory
