On Remembrance

                                          On Remembrance

Tins rattled before our face,

Reminding us to buy,

A poppy red to remember them,

The men and w’m, who fought and died

 

We who served – do remember them,

and not just upon one day,

Their faces printed in our minds 

Forever there to stay

 

It’s more than poppies, flags, and horns 

our remembrance requires no prompts, 

For we who’ve served,  it’s part of us

shaped in deserts, seas, and swamps

 

It is right and good to remember them –

Those who served along our side

As years go on we’ll honour them –

those who fought and died

 

Padre


 

In honour and remembrance of HM3 David Worley (USN) [Beirut 1983] and Sgt. Patrick R. Kwiatkowski (USMC) [El Salvador 1985]
