Will it be remembered?
In a hundred years more.
Will my grave have fallen
Into despair.
Will they remember how I left
With hope in my eyes, shouting
“I’ll be home for Christmas”.

Will they remember
The mud,
The shrapnel,
The blood
And the cries.
Will they remember the fallen,
The pointless waste of young lives.
Will you remember the place where I died?
