A Benevolent Globe of Remembrance

     Men and women
     That lived and died,
     Fought for freedom
     With all their hearts they tried.

     Sick and tired
     They took to battle,
     While at home
     Family members struggled.

     As they travelled around the world
     Fighting against despair and fear,
     Memories of the fallen
     To significant others are so clear,
     Their grave so far,
     Their love so near.

     We stand untied together
     Worshiping their sacrifice
     With great honour,
     These men and women
     Will be remembered forever
     For giving their lives
     So we may grow to love
     One another…

               ‘Lest we forget’.
