The memories of war


I knew that the war had come to an end at last
Cheers rise from the army
Oceans of tears come from the past.

It was time to go home
To families and friends
And back to Rome

We celebrated the feast
Until we heard a “PAROSA!”
From underwater came a giant beast

We knew we were in danger
At the mercy of the monster
But suddenly there appeared a mysterious stranger

He was glowing with light
Shinier than silver
And far too bright

We tried to hide
Any place we could
But the light was by our side
A voice said “God will help us win”
You have nothing to fear
Help will come to you from within

The words came true
We were set free
We won and triumphed in the war, you see .
