CANADIAN NAM VETS

Well, you were there,
and we were there
and New Zealanders
and Australians were there…
So you share a brotherhood.
I’ve seen your Memorial,
your parades in Internet pics…
You have your memorial sites;
you are proud, as we are…
And it’s been a long time coming.
Join us. Be our brothers and
our sisters… join hands with us
in this strange time of life.
March with us around the world
In unity, and strife.
We are neighbors –
If you need us, we’ll be there…
Especially in this evil time
when there is some despair.
We’re here for you –

You’re there for us.
Canada…
Our Brothers… Our Neighbor.
