Fallen Soldiers

Willingly you answered a nation’s call; no gun to your head,

Life, the most precious gift you gave; to preserve this fair land,

Your bodies now rest in foreign lands; tortured Souls now free,

We mourn lost generations; you were lost to those left behind,

When the dawn breaks; we bow our heads in appreciation,

For the sacrifice you gave; to preserve life as we know,

The Sun shines in each passing day; the wild winds still blow,

Through the rain and Sun, we prevail; thanks to you we walk free,

Monuments stand tall; your names inscribed there upon,

On this sombre dawn we reflect in remembrance,

Lest we forget.
