Year 6 Remembrance Assembly


I Remember


I remember it like it was yesterday…

I remember it from the very start

I remember us as soldiers pure of heart

I remember standing beside a stone wall

I remember honourably standing tall

I remember how I didn’t know

What the tragedy of War would show


I remember it like it was yesterday

I remember obeying my commands

I remember fighting in foreign lands

I remember the soldier daring and bold

I remember he didn’t do what he was told

I remember he saw me on the battlefield

And used himself as a human shield


Now I sit here in my rocking chair

And hold my medal, deep in despair


I owe my life to that brave man

The soldier I thank and will always remember….
