I Will Remember Them

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam
i wonder in 50 years time will any one give a dam. All those brave men that gave there lives for us will they still be remembered will any one care
To those across the pond that died keeping our world safe, we pray for you and yours.
Did you write that? It made my cry.

No. Its an old British poem called An Ode to Remembrance but it's one of my favourites
