Dear Soldier, You battled, in the sun and rain, Fought until the end You tried to withstand the pain Of the loss of a friend. Dear Soldier, endless battles you fought, Gunfire through the night As you stepped of the dirty field Dust in the morning light. Dear Soldier, you and allies too Worked hard to survive You sacrificed your life for us So we would thrive. Dear Soldier, here lies in my hand A symbolic poppy To remind me of how you protected us And of your legacy.
