Your Life

by | Sep 24, 2009 | Poetry | 0 comments

Your life was an example
Of how all should behave.
Rock-hard as a mortar man
Undaunted and brave.
The weight you once carried
with lightness was borne.
A friend, and a comrade
True courage has shown…
The Veterans, the shopkeepers,
in silence now stand
To honour a soldier who died
as a man.

‘As a hero you lived, as a hero
you died
And all who have loved you
have done so with pride.’
