On Veterans day we honour all
Who gave their best enduring call
God bless each one for being there
All servicemen, who did their share.
The soldiers young and soldiers old
They fought the war, so brave and bold
They fought in Jungle, dessert, sea
If not for them, where would we be?
Some of them lived while others died
Although they battled side by side
They fought many a day and night
Their minds determined, spirits bright.
The loved ones bore the greatest pain
So many thoughts will never wane
We’re proud of all the soldiers who
Kept thinking of red, white and blue
We’ll never let their special day,
Their time, or honour, slip away
And though we may not know each name
We thank all veterans just the same….
