THE ELEVENTH HOUR - LEST WE FORGET

THE ELEVENTH HOUR - LEST WE FORGET At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day Of the eleventh month We stand for two minutes of silence To honour our fallen, our daughters and sons. They went off to war, to places unknown They knew not what they'd face They knew not if they'd return But they went bravely, to keep our home safe. Please bow your head for two minutes For those men and women so brave It's only two minutes for them on this day But it's their whole lives for us that they gave. © ELR 2013
