Marching Again

Post  RichieO on Sat Nov 05 2011, 23:45

Marching Again

I am marching again
Onward down this road
I March with comrades
Shoulder to shoulder
Men, Women, Auxiliary And Civilians
We March together

Down this road again we go
Past the Marching bands
Onwards towards our goal
Then in distance we see
The symbol that remembers me.
The Cenotaph, stands proud and erect
Surrounded by wreaths of red.

The Poppy, so red symbolises
The blood of the dead
Brings everlasting sleep
And peace to our glorious dead.
We shall remember thee
That gave us peace in our time.

We shall March for thee
So you can March with us
We shall always remember
Thus we never forget
I'll stand in silence
For two minutes you'll see
Then too attention I’ll stand
Raise my hand to forehead
I will salute you when
The Last post do sound.

Thanks to all your comments when I watch the Veterans marching it brings a tear to my eyes. There are not many Veterans left from the First World War One now so their stories will be lost but still remembered.
