Remember Them

The road to get here was long and full of danger

With every step I was in the land of the stranger

 

Never did I shirk my duty or go along for the ride

I wore my uniform with purpose, love and pride

 

It was during this service soldiers died by my hand

An enemy who would seek, to usurp my homeland.

 

I travelled far for my country my people my flag

And not once have I ever thought reason to brag

 

To see what my forefathers achieved for my life

Was reason enough to train toil and ease strife

 

In countries which the language I do not know

I fight an often unseen and unyielding foe

 

It is with pride I travelled so far and wide

To ensure the flag would fly by my side

 

In many theatres of war I have discharged my gun

And the comrades I have made are my only fun

 

I travel now on two wheels of spokes and steel

But nothing will ever destroy the pride I feel

 

So on this most special of days don’t fret for me

Think of the soldiers that died to ensure you stay free!
