Ashes (World War I)


Ashes
From the ashes you came
To the ashes, you leave behind
I will never forget
The brave men and women
Who fought
For one nation
Family members who will never say goodbye
To loved sons and daughters
Who died during that fateful war
Waiting, watching, wondering
Do the people back home think of us
Or our we just were forgotten
We return to the trench covered in ashes
With tear streams being the only clean spots
From the ashes you came
To the ashes, you leave behind
I will never forget
The brave men and women
Who fought
For one nation
And left their ashes behind for another day
