      Forever young
      Forever cold
      Forever gone
      Lying in a grave
      Unmarked
      Uncared for
      Unknown
      Alone
      Lost
      Yet still
      An ember glows
      Unquenchable
      Inextinguishable
      Not in his breast
      Not in his heart
      For they are gone
      The glow remains
      In the hearts
      The breasts
      Of children playing
      A generation free
      From war's horrors
      The price paid
      Duty met
      Ultimate sacrifice
      Ultimate love
      Oh, honorable son
      Of a loving nation
      Rest well
      Knowing we honor
      You in turn
      Your warmth now ours
      Your duty now ours
      As we pass
      The glowing ember
      To the next generation
      Of free people
      Everywhere

        Hi Jerry.

        A fitting tribute expressing thanks to the many brave men and women
        who gave their all that their fellow countrymen may remain free of
        the oppressor's yoke of tyranny.
        On the countdown to D-Day anniversary perhaps others in this group
        will find a way to honour the unselfish sacrifice of those unsung
        heroes.

        Thanks for sharing Jerry

        As always

        Wings
