Poppies are red, blood is too
In life and death we will remember you
We laughed hard together at childhood memories
Socialised, drank and ate until we had spent all our pennies.
Your place in our heart and soul is forever sewn,
As is your friendship, valour and sacrifice in the Combat Zone.
We will help and guide your families when needed
This I promise their prayers will not go unheeded.
Until the inevitable day we meet again
I lift a glass in remembrance RIP, AMEN.
