Title: To the Soldier
Author: David.M.Clark
Published: 25, Apr, 2010
Notes: Dedicated to the Australian Armed Forces

Someone died on a battlefield,
About ten minutes ago.
Their fate was finally cruely sealed,
It was someone you might know.

That someone will now never return,
To those who filled their days.
A loving memory that will always burn,
Through life’s chaotic haze.

They put themselves in harms way,
To protect those dear at home.
Keeping enemy advances at bay,
So in our homeland we safely roam.

To the diggers and armed forces,
From today and yesteryear,
For you all we humbly pray,
For keeping us from all fear.

No greater love could you have shown,
For giving your life for us all.
So we make your memory our very own,
And thank you for hearing the call.
