A silence sweeps across the land, as poppies blow in the wind,
lifting prayers and dreams away;
It’s the 11th of November, 2011, as we honour all the
fallen soldiers, on this 93rd Remembrance Day.
Some words can bring you hope, but these verses are to remember
all of the dead;
Many years have passed, as the poppies make the once violent
fields, now flow a new shade of red.
The first guns fell silent in the 11th month, on the 11th
day, during the 11th hour;
Over 16 million people lost their lives during World War 1,
remembered today only by a little red flower.
Across this fighting planet World War 2 wiped out over 60 million
dreams, leaving an entire generation of heroes to now rest in peace in heaven;
Is it just a coincidence that we remember our saviours, on the angelic
date of 11, 11.
Fighting wars isn’t just a distant memory, as so far 179 British
lions have lost their lives on the battlefield in Iraq;
Leaving families torn apart, as loved ones pray to the skies, for
there fallen angels to come back.
These guardian angels fell trying to keep our countries freedom,
as it’s only those brave souls who gave you the gift to live your life, your
So wear your poppy with pride, and thank the lost heroes on this
93rd Remembrance Day.
