Who Give more than they receive,
Who Stand against the surging tides,
Who Cherish Each Breath, Each Heartbeat;
For there may not be another,
Who Sacrifice that others might not,
Who Uphold what is taken for granted,
Who are Unseen, often Unheard;
Yet Never Forgotten,
Who walk in Honour
And Boldly Go into the darkness
Where others fear to tread.
All Heart-felt Gratitude and Unwavering Respect
To All Those Who Have and Do
What is the cost of Death and Shadows,
Fire and light?
What is the Impact of bombs exploding
Through the Harrowing Night?
Do we consider the Tears and Sorrow,
Guns and Ammo?
Who carries the Flag,
our Soldiers in Camo?
Will we remember their Courage and Honor
Their Distinction by Hours?
What Tribute of Memory remains
Beyond the Scattered Flowers?
In Loving Remembrance of all those who have and who still do serve this country/ Every country. On this day of Honour as we recall the sacrifices made, it may be the best time of all to understand that ALL soldiers serve for love of their own country and to protect and honour the way of life THEY hold dear. Right or Wrong, Truth or Lies, the Soldier carries the heaviest burden.
