Innocent souls rise.
A distant memory.
Murder in disguise,
by terrorists to be.

Killing brings you joy.
This thought sickens me.
Slaying girls and boys,
then sit down to tea.

War is not a choice
that you should take lightly.
If it was your childs voice,
then perhaps you would see.

The decisions that you make
are not the key.
So many lives you take,
now gone for eternity.

Someday you will know,
while praying on your knee.
The weeds that you now sow
will never set you free.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan today ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....

We bid farewell to family and friends,
In hope that someday we'll live as brothers.
I pray for the day all wars will end,
and my fate shall be spared to others.

It was the war to end all wars,
That is what they had said.
After all these years,
Britain still counts her dead.

I was a true Britain,
I wish you could see,
All I ask is,
Remember Me.

In war I fought and died,
I thought it did cease.
Now under the Blue Beret,
I die for World Peace.

Like Civilians, Sailors and Airmen
Plus the thousands of soldiers before.
On the11th November Remember
I died for Peace not War.

I was a true Britain,
I wish you could see.
All I ask is,
Remember Me.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who died today in Afghanistan ...RIP ...
My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time ....

We had so little time to share,
Too soon, I had to leave.
I know how much you love me,
I know how much you grieve.

I know how sharp your pain is,
I feel the aching in your hearts.
My life so quickly ended
Before it barely had a start.

I remember how you held me,
And kissed my face and hands,
You cuddled me so gently;
But, God had other plans.

I was your perfect angel,
From God you knew I came,
Suddenly he called me home again,
And now God holds my hand.

The morning paper
Held familiar news of
Another soldier
Sacrificed…
A burnt offering on
The altar of war.

Another one gone.

Like seconds on a clock,
Each one lost
Is gone forever,
Never to be regained.

Such a loss means
One less bouquet of roses,
No more teddy bears, and
Silenced pillow talk.

Another one gone.

Some flags wave high above
Ribbon-adorned trees,
While others tuck in
Those who sleep for eternity.

Public speeches stir up
Conflicts of support and dissent;
Private mourning fuels
A forever-altered normality
For those left behind.

Another one gone,
Though never forgotten,
Despite the endless names
Flowing like rivers
Past the gate of eternity.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan today ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to his family at this sad time .....

Rest now my fallen brother
Lay soft your suffering back
Rest well and forever
Your memory shall not lack
Rest your tired hands
Wipe clean your weary brow
Rest with St. Peter
Your spirit now endowed
Rest here your breaking heart
We know you gave your all
Rest easy, you’ve done your part
You’ve answered your last call
Rest knowing that in god we sought
Oh lord, watch over another who just fell
Rest assured your troubled thought
As we ring the final bell.

So very far away from home
Half a world away
Our support and prayers go out to you
Each and every day

You fight the fight for freedom
And you do your country proud
As you liberate a country
In which freedoms not allowed

For the Union Jack is waving
This country’s proud as we can be
We thank you all, for it is men
Like you that made her free


Dedicated to the two brave soldiers killed in Afghanistan today ...RIP...

I lie wrapped in folds of armour plate
within my home as grey as slate
I'm far away from land and shore
in peaceful sleep on a man of war
Come light of Day and morning sun
I'll check the functions of my gun
I'll check the Point and then the Train
and then I'll check it all again
For that's the gun that let's me sleep
and keeps me from a grave so deep
I'm now asleep, my mind at peace
but will my battles never cease ?
The years have ggone, the gun is rust
so many friends are now just dust
But they are never far from me
although some sleep beneath the sea
For them no songs are ever sung
but they will be forever young
Friends and relations shed their tears
forgotten now these many years
But some of us remember still
remember them, and always will
I ask them now for my release
or will my battles never cease

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free;
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

If you can, save a place within your heart for the tired souls of war and conflict and as you walk away take one last backward glance at the places they can no longer go.
Remember what they have taught you and take their knowledge and wisdom with you so their deaths were not in vain. One day when we all look back and realize what they sacrificed, take a moment to embrace in your heart all those gentle heroes that were left behind on the battlefields fighting for their country. Let them know that you have always loved them even though you may not have.
Forever save a place in your hearts for them.

Off to war they marched and still,
Tough not always their will,
They marched on for their country to be free,
They marched on to die if need be,
They left their families and their homes,
Not to know what awaits them where they go,
They pushed forward with no second thought,
They pressed on through those, whom they fought,
They watched as their friends fell,
Protecting this country that they loved so well,
Remember Those Who Serve the flag,
For if it was not for them we would never be glad,
Just like those men in the days of old,
Who for their country and freedom they knew they must go,
Off to war they march and still

When I am gone, remember I'm with Jesus,
then do not mourn because I've passed away.
Life holds so many griefs and disappointments,
And will you cry because I did not stay?
It is only for a spell we must be parted;
Not many years on earth to us are given,
And when the Saviour tells me you are coming,
I'll go with him to welcome you to heaven.
Grieve not because the eyes that looked upon you
shall never see your face on earth again.
Rejoice, because they look upon the Saviour
Who gave his life to ransom sinful man
Weep not because I walk no longer with you
Remember, I am walking streets of gold
Weep for yourselves that you awhile may tarry
Before the blessed Lord you must behold.

A crisp and clear late summers night, my mind is drifting far
Back nearly forty years or so, to the fields of South Armagh
Back to the time when I was young, when life was new, And death was, too
And in my mind, I catch the smells, of new cut grass, and late night dew
Of whispering trees, and whispering grass, and all those sounds of night
The sudden run of unseen hare, the sounds that gave us all a fright
Then on we`d walk, with silken step, between the hedgerows, body`s forced
Avoiding gaps that may be wired, avoiding paths where streams once coursed
Skirting round abandoned farms, with mouldy smells of rotting wood
To venture into unseen ruins would not be wise, would not be good
And slowly, as the night progressed, we made our torturous route
Stopping every now and then, on haunches sat, adjusting straps,
re-hanging kit, tightening up a loosened boot
Until at last we find our way, to our new `home` of many a day
Just fallen stones, where in the past, a wall once stood, but now collapsed
And here we`ll stay, to watch and wait, the `shuftyscope` hums low and green
Watching deep into the night, for distant cars, for men unseen
And as the dawn comes from the East, the pale light bathes the breeze bent grass
The blood drenched fields of South Armagh revealed now to all who pass
And so in age, my head lifts up, a tear of memory fills my eyes
And I remember friends who died, so long ago, beneath a diamond sky


Dedicated to my mate who was killed in Northern Ireland 22 years ago today ... RIP ...

The soldiers life is not for all
A soldier must be willing to give his all
He is overworked and underpaid
A truer patriot was never made
Ready to go at any time
Wherever there is trouble or the first sign
His courage and honour are unsurpassed
Ready and willing to complete the task
Travelling to lands both near and far
He stands his post and looks at the stars
Wondering what he might have done
If he had not chosen to carry a gun
Remember the next time that you are driving by
And see the flag flying proud and high
That somewhere out there a soldier stands
Weary and cold in a foreign land
Protecting our country from our foes
Standing tall and proud come rain or snow.

I will Always Respect
My Leader's Advice
I will not Question His Orders
I will Not Think Twice

I will Always Place the Lives
Of My comrades Before Mine
Protect them From The enemy Danger
Be the First To Cross the Line


I will Always Remember
In the Time Of War
The Promises I Made To God and to My Country
To Be A Good Soldier I swore

I will Continue to Believe
In My Country As A Whole
And Though Criticised By Many
Remember I play A Important Role

I become Battered
Or A Broken Man
But I will Keep My Will to Survive
Never forget The Words " I Can"

I will Keep My Courage Everlasting
No Matter The Choices That Face Me
I May Die In The Arms Of War
But I will die For My Country With Honour and Dignity……


Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed 22nd June in Afghanistan today ... RIP ...

A Nation lives forever indebted to your lives
You gave away your spirits, left behind your wives.
When one fell down, another would stand
To die for his country in a foreign land.

Together they fought ‘ till the enemy lost
Fought for our freedom, whatever the cost.
I can come and go whenever, wander where I please -
Because of you a nation lives and breathes in ease.

Thank you for my life and freedom, my ability to roam
Because of you I can be proud to call this nation home
