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.
