    Default The visit


    Even though he's nearing ninety,
    And his hair is white as snow.
    Every year he comes to visit,
    With the chums he used to know.

    It was here they fought together,
    And here his chums had died.
    It was here he knelt in sorrow,
    And here he stood and cried.

    But this time there's something different,
    Just a stillness on the breeze.
    And a young voice gently mingles
    With the rustling of the leaves.

    And the old man stood in wonder,
    As an old man often will.
    While the young voice whispered softly,
    We're still waiting for you Bill,

    For those who gave their tomorrows for our todays, lest we forget!

    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.
