Soldier, Soldier, Soldier - 'Lest We Forget'

Soldier, Soldier, Soldier

You off to war did go,

A brave and much loved person,

Of whom I did not know,

You fought a foe you could not see,

Although beside you he may be, but to you he wouldn't show.

--------------------------

Soldier, Soldier, Soldier

You fought, with your head held high,

In heat and cold you fought so hard, your valour ever bold,

Fighting on with a will, that you knew would never die,

But for what cause is this you risked your life,

What are the reasons never told.

--------------------------


Soldier, Soldier, Soldier

We may never know my friend, the reason for you not growing old,

The reason for your Mother, Father, sister, brother,

No longer, having you to hold,

The reason for your children, to lie awake at night,

Crying after losing Dad, because of someone else's fight.

--------------------------

 

Soldier, Soldier, Soldier

 

Sadly now the time has come, you no longer have to fight, for you it is all over,

 

The enemy sought you out, albeit by bullet or by bomb,

 

Yet another damned statistic on the press front cover,

 

And back to this country you will come,

 

Just like so many, who before you may have done!

--------------------------

Soldier, Soldier, Soldier

You have given your all, to protect others like me,

You have now returned at last, your fighting there is done,

Your final journey is now ahead of you, although it may be a lonely one,

Your work there will carry us forward, and from you, we will learn,

That with strength of character such as yours, we can travel on.

--------------------------

Soldier, Soldier, Soldier

'Lest We Forget' what you have done,

We will remember you, each and everyone,

Past and present you have all fought for us, to make our life ahead a better one,

God Bless you in your after life, may you be free of all pain and anguish,

For us our memories of you will never die, and we all will surely cherish.

Spider!

Spider!

I have written this to mark the 100th repatriation of our fallen service personnel through Wootton Bassett on the 20th November 2009.

But also to remind us of the millions of people who have died or been injured in conflicts around the world.

Hopefully one day it is the world itself that will Rest in Peace
