Hero's live on - by Jeff Briggs

This is a small tribute to those who died during WW1

Hero's live on, hero's they die

Never forget where they lie

We lost our family today

We lost our loved ones they say

We lost our lovers, our fathers, our brothers

A sacrifice they had to pay

They died in the Somme for democratic freedom

A generation lost faraway

We shall never forget as they will not grow old

Under the last sunset they lie in fields of gold

Hero's live on, hero's they die

Never forget where they lie

I received a letter today

It came from far away

And I hesitated, ripped open then waited

My hands were shaking with fear

For the words that I read

Simply said he was dead

A letter posted dated last year

We shall never forget as they will not grow old

Under the last sunest they lie in fields of gold

 

Hero's live on,  hero's they die

Never forget where they lie
