spacer V.E.DAY (Ode to Soldiers Brave)
spacer
 

Come, share a glass, imbibe with me
On the eve of this historic day,
Take wine and meat, let's celebrate
In the tried and trusted way.
Let us toast the victory
Before we count the cost
Wrap the peace around us
Ere we cry for those we've lost.

 
 

Come, share a glass, imbibe with me
As I salute my fallen friends,
Through their unselfish sacrifice
We reap the dividends.
Their sacrifice was the seeds of peace,
Their struggle was our fight
They answered the call when it was made,
So that we, could sleep safe at night.

 
  Come, share a glass imbibe with me
Drink from the fountain of their faith,
Believe in the life they laid down for us
Fear not the message of the wraith.
For that ghostly spectre bought your peace
With all that he could give,
He paid the price of life itself
So that you and I may live.
