In contemplation on this day

Both pride and sadness grow;

We laud the courage on display;

Yet tears can overflow.

 

White crosses filling endless fields

Remind us of those lost;

We long for respite, that which shields

Us from war’s wicked cost.

 

We honour all who gave their life

And those who suffer still,

But yearn for ways to halt the strife,

And strength to find the will.

 

We can resolve to nourish peace,

To strive for equity;

To act with justice and increase

Our zeal for harmony.

 

Yet still the human spirit shines

Amidst this grief and pain;

We nurture, cherish that which binds,

So hopes for peace remain
