Remembering those lost to war
PARADE OF THE FALLEN

Like slaughtered lambs
They litter lands
These children of the poor
Like cannon fire
We admire
The heroes that came before.
Battle worn
We see the dawn
For another year has passed.
To mourn our friends
A bitter end
Their memories not betrayed.
Wreaths lay bare
Tears are shared
For brothers
Lost to time
A prayer is read
We bow our heads...
And remember forever more
The men who walked so proudly
And answered the call to war…
