The Association Reflection

We Will Remember Them

Poppy GardenWe will recall
Our yearly tribute placing
The hopes and dreams that slowly had to fade
We will go on
The lonely future facing
Knowing too well the sacrifice you made.

We will forget
The loneliness and worry
The pain of parting and the tears we shed
Forget as well
The aching and the longing
Keeping our memories of the times we shared.

We will remember
Head held high with pride
We will keep vigil
With our men who died.

Written by Mrs Kay Todd, Chairman 1985-88

Originally sung at the Saturday Remembrance Service to the tune of the ‘Londonderry Air’.
