A Silent Thank You


As the sun leaves the sky,

we salute those, who had to die,

to ensure that freedom dawned,

those we lost, forever mourned.


We salute those brave men,

who never marched back home again.

We give grateful thanks to the armless ,

and the lame,

and the blind and insane,

who gave their future,

so we could be

in a world, forever free.


So come the morning

we’ll stand and pray,

and a silent thank you say.

for those who gave their lives away

and their tomorrow for our today.
