Hearts At War

Coughing, Coking, Dying, Drowning,
Blinding, Killing

Bravery and death
Marching asleep in fear
Lame blind, drunk with faitgue
Face to face, hand to hand
Allies against each other pretending to die

Fighting to Survive
Painful and suffering death
The dead soldiers lay unburied
Families waiting to see loved ones
Sitting, waiting for the horrible yellow telegram

Knock, knock, knock
The door is open
A uniformed man stands there
The yellow telegram is handed over
Tears start to fall from the face

Knowing they will never see them again
We will remember all the brave hearts that went to fight for our country.
