As We Remember

Submitted by Valerie Nelson in the 18+ category

Life as we decide to live it, lets us experience many things
. We can never take for granted, all the beauty that it brings.
We can all be forever grateful, for all who fought on our part
As we give our blessings to them, feelings strong within our heart.

For all of the Men and Women, who had left their homes behind
To serve our country far away, not knowing what they would find
In their length of service, traveling on land, in the air, water and shore Family awaited any word, not knowing if they would see them once more.

So now as we remember, “ The Poppy “ serves as a form of respect Their lives and devotion, in our thoughts will always have an effect
Lest We Forget, in Flanders Fields, to so many that we have known
 Our Canada, will never forget, all the pride and courage they had shown.

We will always be indebted, for all their time and dedication that they gave Serving for all of us, they deserve our admiration, as they were all so brave So now we will show our honor back to them, and will always remember Every day of the year, not only just on this, the Eleventh of November.
