Rememberance Day: We Will Not Forget Them

My son Justin wrote this poem last year:

We Will Not Forget Them

Remembrance Day comes once a year,
A memorial where we can remember …

The men and women that gave their lives for peace
Our thought for the dead stay quietly in our minds
As they lay under the poppies

We will not forget them

At ceremonies across our nation
We honour our veterans
We will not forget the important lessons we learned

We will not forget them

The silence ends two minutes past
The eleventh hour
When our leaders signed a treaty for a peaceful world

They are not forgotten

Lord, we have one thing to say,
Let the countries of our world understand
What a wreath means.
