time of rememberance


Roses may be red
But poppies are too
So, at this time of year
On each November eleven
Please remember the veterans
Who all fought or died for you
Tho their reward is heaven
Still....give them their due
For the sacrifice they made
And the future they laid for you
So...at the eleventh hour..on the eleventh day....
Of the eleventh month...attend a local service
At the nearest monument
Be there with those that care
Tis' sure a veteran will be there
So...bow your head and pray
That never again we see
A soldier will be readied
To have to save the day
Now when the service is over
Approach one brave soldier
Offer him your hand...thank him for his valor
For saving and keeping our land
