Lest We Forget

 

we sit here ignorant

of sacrifices made

for a peace so dearly bought

not so much as a moment

spared

for those who spared

nothing

 

what luxury

to be able to forget

what ought never be forgotten

 

pray, God, forgive us

the careless value

we place upon their blood

 

How can we ever do enough to honour those

whose sacrifice bought our freedom.
