Remembering the brave
Remembered with honour that is your epitaph.
Your gravesite unvisited on foreign soil.
White cross among thousands
your soul long since fled.
For your homeland's old enemy
your young blood was shed.
Do you have knowledge of me and mine?
On your seat in heaven do you recline
and watch us live out our lives in peace.
Unmindful most times of your sacrifice.
I hope death came swiftly
your dear soul to claim.
That you did not have to linger in hunger and pain.
The debt that we owe you can never be paid.
In the absence of flowers our remembrance is laid.
