Remembering Main Image By Dark Blue Knight

 



It is a cool November morning
The month it all began
And we stand along the roadways
To watch our Veterans


We see them in our cities
And our smallest village streets
As we stop in reverence and listen
To the sound of marching feet


They march in stark remembrance
Of those who with medals do adorn
And also to the memories
Of those to whom they now do mourn


These Veterans don’t feel special
Just men and women of all ages
But they all donned a uniform and served
So left their marks on history’s pages



From the Army and the Navy
Air Force and Merchant Marine
All dressed in splendid uniform
Marching like an oiled machine


Perfection is their trademark
In everything they do
Today it is remembering
All those who served for you


Remember these, our Veterans
As you see them side by side
For they’ve given of themselves freely
And served us with much pride


For tomorrow might bring another day
Just like has been before
Today they marched along the streets
Tomorrow, they’re at war



Pray we will see them next year
As another November wind does blow
But we know if it is called of them
They will simply not say NO


They’ll take our flag and raise it
Then watch it as one sees
Fight for all it stands for
As it flutters in the breeze


Twelve months have now passed onwards
Another year has passed us by
Some Veterans from last year are with us
And some did sadly die


It is a cool November morning
The month it all began
And we stand along the roadways
To watch our Veterans
