Lest We Forget

wp-1478866173763.jpgThe reason we remember cannot be forgot

They gave up their lives to give us a lot

When I was a child my grandmother said

They had to sleep in the pantry instead of the bed


Bombs rained down as they huddled close

The sound of sirens scared her the most

Hours on end they sat in the dark

Waiting for light and hope to spark


Grandad Bob told me that when he was five

His family were lucky to be alive

As the Germans attacked the English coast

He was running and was scared the most


My Grandad on my father’s side

Was fifteen and he could not hide

So he ran away to join the fight

So that our generation could live in light


Don’t get caught up in your freedom

For we may have to rise next

None of us want war…

…but these leaders are getting vexed
