Eternal Debt

It is not the remembrance 

Or the remembering 

That matters most to me

To those who have served 

And remained at their post

It is the not forgetting

Those who have given most

Along with a guilty feeling

That they have somehow survived

A feeling remaining all their life

Loss of those loved comrades 

The courageous ones who died

Died to give us freedom

Freedom to live our life

It is why we try to do our best

We never will forget

The sacrifice they paid

We will repay the eternal debt
