For Our Veterans

November 10, 2012

Off to war they marched
To foreign lands afar
Perils unimagined
Their country they did serve
With valour and distinction
For freedoms rights they fought
They made us all so proud

For those that did return
And those that never would
We pause in silent memory
Heads bowed in solemn reverence
On the 11th day, of the 11th month,
At the 11th hour,
And say a prayer of thanks
