They Gave Themselves - Poem by Royston Allen

They gave themselves in bloody war
and months and years will see no more.
Their future and their existence gave
they were so young, they were so brave

Midst bombs and bullets they stood their ground
and no greater love will ever be found.
Then, as they fell in silent sacrifice
by their death they gave us life
