Voices From The Past

They who fought to give us a life

Now for all time lie in a silent void

Surrounded not by life but a quietness

That forever theirs to endure

There is no pain or the sound of guns

They gave their all for our freedom won

But as they lie silent in their graves

Take a moment to listen and you will hear

Their voices calling from the past

“Protect your freedoms, make it last”
