NO more the sound of conflict No more the theatre of war Left behind long ago On that far distant shore The heartache of silence Your voice around no more Your last words spoken In a letter I hold so dear Next to my heart, so you are always near The children now older Understand the futility of war Today we stand together Remembering happier days Remembering the love we shared Before war took it away We have cried many tears, since that fatal day The birthdays you missed The Christmases without you Those were lonely days The pain is easing Yet the heartache remains The crowd are silent as I look around The silence is broken, as a bugle sounds A day of Remembrance Remembering you today Before our lives were shattered When war took you away.
