To all that gave their lives so that others could be free
Gone but not forgotten are those who died for you and me
With their loved ones left behind and all they held so dear
None could ever take their place nor wipe away our tear
Forever etched within our hearts can never be erased
Will always lift the spirits high nor ever to be abased
Those of us who still remain we'll continue to hold fast
Lifting up the blood stained banner gripping e'er the mast
Tis the casualties of war fought in the name of peace
O'er the billowing waves abound battle cries never to cease
Alas, alas the bell still tolls ringing out its endless peal
Remembering our heroes past, old wounds just beginning to heal
Excellent Patricia, a sentiment upon which I am sure we all agree, and beautifully written. Very well rhymed, as always from your pen.
Tis the casualties of war fought in the name of peace O'er the billowing waves abound battle cries never to cease Alas, alas the bell still tolls ringing out its endless peal Remembering our heroes past, old wounds just beginning to heal A Very powerful stanza... a fit tribute to all those heroic souls who shed even the last drop of blood to enable us to live in peace and freedom! If we forget them it wii be the gravest ingratitude! Thank you for reminding us of the immense debt of gratitude we should have towards the heroes of war!
Nice and richly deserved tribute to our heroes who make ultimate sacrifices for our sake.Thanks for share.
Remembering our heroes past, wounds just beginning to heal Great poem Patricia in honor of all those who served and serve. Thank you.
Many of such Ppl died knowing not if someone would appreciate their sacrifice. They will be happy to know that this day in this time, one of the best poets of the land, Patricia Grantham, appreciates them in a biut'ful way. God bless you.
A brilliant and pretty poem. Rated 10
It will be great if peace can be achieved without war..but it is honourable to fight for what is wright, and those souls remembered. ''To die with honour is better than to live in shame''...let peace prevail for all. nice write.
A heartfelt tribute to those brave hearts who sacrificed their lives unconditionally for our country with a dream for peace..... wish that peace prevail all over

Patricia, too often we forget the sacrifices that our soldiers make - in just trying to keep us safe. War is ugly and a sorrowful situation. Love your words here. Thank you!
