Remembrance Day: let us remember (poem)

11 Nov

Lest we forget

Remembrance Day: Let us remember

Let us remember the fallen, those we have lost,
Through their sacrifice, they paid the ultimate cost.
In battles past, they defended us from harm,
In fields now silent, poppies growing in the calm.
In times that are now fading, let us remember,
Those that we can, on the eleventh of November.

Let us know their stories, recognise all they gave,
That in those moments of battle, they were so brave.
That in our moment of need, they stood up to fight,
That acts such as those, should never fade out of sight.
Let us remember the fallen, let us not forget,
And in a moment of silence, remember them yet.
