You gave your today for all of our tomorrows.
In the process causing your families such grief and sorrow.
8. 5 Million lost their lives
In the ultimate human sacrifice.
So young and a life ahead still to live.
So much to offer so much to give.
From boy to men you grew together.
Defending our Country, you thought you had forever.
Dug into the trenches, making your home.
Standing on guard, guns in hand, brothers in arms.
One last order from the Commander, shoulder to shoulder you go over the top.
Last man standing is when you will stop.
100 YEARS has since passed.
The Great War unfortunately was not the last.
Today we wear our poppies with pride.
To remember all soldiers who have died.
We shed tears for those loved and lost.
At what price, at what cost?
Freedom given, many lives lost.
Thank you to all Soldiers that have been before.
Some gave their lives, some gave their limbs, some gave their minds.
They gave it freely, their gift Freedom to all mankind.
