In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

~ by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, on 3 May 1915

They stood on the line facing a fearful power
And lay down their lives for us to survive
We will remember them at the eleventh hour

In day to day life while we lament our strife
Sometimes we forget those who fought
And lay down their lives for us to survive

Time to remember can be so short
We try to do as much as we can
Sometimes we forget those who fought

When we remember, in silence we stand
And give our thanks to their resting souls
We try to do as much as we can

Our time to remember has again drawn close
We stand at attention as they once did
And give our thanks to their resting souls

On this eleventh day of November we will
Remembering all our fallen warriors stand proud
We stand at attention as they once did
We will remember them at the eleventh hour

Lest we forget.
