A November Morning

As we stand, with heads bowed in the rain, 
the bugler pays his final call, 
we say thanks to all those boys
who answered then, our countries call.
Women also stood their ground 
and new strength and new heroes
 soon were found,
many who did not, make it home,
some times Britain stood alone,
but on this cold November day 
a heartfelt thank you is what we say,
for our tomorrow 
you gave away, 
your oh so precious, your today.
