For Remembrance Day: a short ditty

Forever young your faces be/As bright as the stars your blessed souls be/Immortality’s youth, serene and care-free

Forever young your faces be

As bright as the stars your blessed souls be

Immortality’s youth, serene and care-free

Forever young your faces be

 

Forever young your voices be

Transcend through the noise, so wondrously free

Not trapped in the storm and terror’s cold screams

Forever young your voices be

 

Forever young your memories be

To your mothers and fathers, to your loved ones? to me

Your laughter and smiles, your passion and dreams

Forever young your memories be

 

As my body grows old and my thoughts escape me

As I stoop all alone in the Cenotaph’s lee

I will remember your faces from that scripted stone screen

Forever young your faces be
