"Why is it so cold?"
An innocent girl asks
She wouldn't understand
It's what the world masks.

She doesn't know why
Why everyone seems to cry
It's something few understand
Why men must be sent to die.

In a desert far away
Heroes stand strong and tall
Though dirtied with life
The men are brave through it all.

Perhaps this is what is needed
A little discipline and war
To make some people realize
Life won't be like before.

Brave men die far away
Protecting us from harm
A young man looks down
He forgot his good luck charm.

In an instant his life is gone
Torn away from the ground
In the distance a man lies fallen
With his hands and feet bound.

In a world far from war
People cannot see
What these men do
Their heroism and bravery.

So when the girl asks
"Why is it so cold?"
It's because of the men
That we can no longer hold.

Dedicated to the two brave soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan ... RIP ...
My sincere condolences to their families at this sad time .....

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.

I went to see the soldiers, row on row on row,
And wondered about each so still, their badges all on show.
What brought them here, what life before
Was like for each of them?
What made them angry, laugh, or cry,
These soldiers, boys and men.

Some so young, some older still, a bond more close than brothers
These men have earned and shared a love, that's not like any others
They trained as one, they fought as one
They shared their last together
That bond endures, that love is true
And will be, now and ever.

I could not know, how could I guess, what choices each had made,
Of how they came to soldiering, what part each one had played?
But here they are and here they'll stay,
Each one silent and in place,
Their headstones line up row on row
They guard this hallowed space.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed in Afghanistan yesterday ...RIP...

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.

I know you’ll always miss me,
I understand your pain is hard to bear.
Just remember that I’m in heaven
And we’ll see each other there.

So smile when you think of me
and wipe away all of your tears
I’m cuddled now in heaven
By our family members here.

I’m waiting here in heaven,
And on the day we meet again.
I’ll be the first to smile and greet you,
When God calls you home to him.

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.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who died yesterday from his wounds sustained in Afghanistan ... RIP ...

The news is spread far and wide
Another comrade has sadly died
A sunset vigil upon the sand
As a soldier leaves this foreign land
We stand alone, and yet as one
In the fading light of a setting sun
We've all gathered to say goodbye
To our fallen comrade who's set to fly
The eulogy's read about their life
Sometimes with words from pals or wife
We all know when the CO's done
What kind of soldier they'd become
The padre then calls us all to pray
The bugler has Last Post to play
The cannon roars and belches flame
We will recall, with pride, their name
A minute's silence stood in place
As tears roll down the hardest face
Deafening silence fills the air
With each of us in personal prayer
Reveille sounds and the parade is done
The hero remembered, forgotten by none
They leave to start the journey back
In a coffin draped in the Union Jack .......

Brothers and sisters all over here fighting
Got me thinking so much now I`m writing
Why is there so much hate in the world
Seeing all this killing makes my stomach curl
We all need to pause and ask ourselves, what are we really doing
We are turning our world into ruin
And what are we really proving
Who's the weaker or stronger human
I think were fighting for a hidden goal
But I'm being told so many lies it troubles my soul
So much he say she say dont know which side to choose
Times have gotten so bad I can't even believe what I hear in the news
At times I just want to bust my TV with a bat
Listening to all this the Government said this, but the media said that
You wish you could say it was better in the old days
But its pretty much the same thing just a new phase
War is never a good thing
But a world without war is still only a Dream.

Dedicated to the brave soldier who was killed on Saturday in Afghanistan ... RIP ...

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on the snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you wake in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die .....

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.

I Will Not Wait

I will not wait for the sun to rise.
Nor will I wait to watch it set.
I will not wait for the morning sky or for what lays ahead.
I will not wait for the rain to start.
Nor will I wait to see the stars.
I will not wait for light to shine nor for the darkness that makes us blind.
I will not stay to let time pass.
Nor shall I stay to make it last.
I will not wait to see your eyes nor shall I stay to hear your cries.
I will not dream of us in life.
Nor shall I stay to believe more lies.
I shall not wait for this to be as I am finally set free.

The bayonet supports the rifle
sticking out of the ground so proud.
The helmet and id tags rest on top,
the boot's cadence is no longer loud.
And the elements were so mixed in him,
that all the world would stand up and say,
This was a man.

PLEASE WEAR A POPPY.

"Please wear a poppy," the lady said
And held one forth, but I shook my head.
Then I stopped and watched as she offered them there,
And her face was old and lined with care;
But beneath the scars the years had made
There remained a smile that refused to fade.

A boy came whistling down the street,
Bouncing along on care-free feet.
His smile was full of joy and fun,
"Lady," said he, "may I have one?"
When she's pinned in on he turned to say,
"Why do we wear a poppy today?"

The lady smiled in her wistful way
And answered, "This is Remembrance Day,
And the poppy there is the symbol for
The gallant men who died in war.
And because they did, you and I are free -
That's why we wear a poppy, you see.

"I had a boy about your size,
With golden hair and big blue eyes.
He loved to play and jump and shout,
Free as a bird he would race about.
As the years went by he learned and grew
and became a man - as you will, too.

"He was fine and strong, with a boyish smile,
But he'd seemed with us such a little while
When war broke out and he went away.
I still remember his face that day
When he smiled at me and said, Goodbye,
I'll be back soon, Mom, so please don't cry.

"But the war went on and he had to stay,
And all I could do was wait and pray.
His letters told of the awful fight,
(I can see it still in my dreams at night),
With the tanks and guns and cruel barbed wire,
And the mines and bullets, the bombs and fire.

"Till at last, at last, the war was won -
And that's why we wear a poppy son."
The small boy turned as if to go,
Then said, "Thanks, lady, I'm glad to know.
That sure did sound like an awful fight,
But your son - did he come back all right?"

A tear rolled down each faded check;
She shook her head, but didn't speak.
I slunk away in a sort of shame,
And if you were me you'd have done the same;
For our thanks, in giving, if oft delayed,
Thought our freedom was bought - and thousands paid!


And so when we see a poppy worn, Let us reflect on the burden borne,
By those who gave their very all, When asked to answer their country's call
That we at home in peace might live.
Then wear a poppy! Remember - and give!

Dedicated to all the brave men and women who have given their lives for this country ... RIP ...

I lie wrapped in folds of armour plate
within my home as gray 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 gone, 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

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

To all the Guys & Gals in our Armed Forces wherever you maybe at this yuletide ... my thoughts are with you ... Merry Xmas and all the best for 2011 ... keep safe


'Twas the night before christmas
in a war over seas
a soldier said a prayer
by his bed on his knees

He said 'I don't wanna be here
but i can not leave
Lord please let my family
have a great christmas eve'

This soldier I speak of
Will Have Christmas alone
all that he has
is a package from home

Inside of the package
was a great surprise
it was a picture of his family
he wiped the tears from his eyes

His wife left a note that said
we are all alone
the kids miss their daddy
please hurry back home

his six year old daughter
gave a teddy bear to her dad
along with a note
that said this will help when you're sad

The soldier picked up his gun
and went back out to work and then he noticed a kid
that looked like he was hurt

the soldier said
'What's the matter kid, where is your family? '
the kid responded by saying
'They just shot my Daddy.'

The soldier said
'I've got something for you, to make you less sad'
Then he pulled out a teddy bear and said
let this remind you of your dad

The soldier went on his way
to continue to fight
and said 'Merry Christmas to all
and to all a good night'

I am a Britain
Who will fight to stay free
I am a Soldier
Of the British Army

I will never forget
What My Country Stands For
Stand In Its Defence
In Peacetime Or War

I will Protect My Allies
Their Countries Too
To Defend Their Freedom
As Each One of Us Do

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 in Afghanistan ... RIP ...

Waiting ........
(written by bravolima) 21st June 2009

I stand on the tarmac feeling cold, and alone
I wait for the moment my love is coming home
You gave your life for freedom, so we can all be free
But as I stand here waiting, I wish you were here with me

The cargo doors are opening, I`m trying to look inside
I see your coffin draped with the union jack, with soldiers by your side
They slowly bring you off the plane, my heart it skips a beat
My sobs are uncontrollable, as I lay a rose at your feet

They place your coffin in the hearse, for the long journey home
Now that you are with me, I don`t feel all alone
You were my first love, and you will be my last
The future looks so bleak, I long for the past

I will not feel your touch again, or watch you as you sleep
Pick up your clothes or hear you laugh, the sadness makes me weep
The memories will stay with me, I love you, out loud, I say
As I lay you down to rest, on this cold and dreary day


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