NOVEMBER THE 11th – PEACEKEEPERS REMEMBERED

Billy Willbond: November the 11th - Peacekeepers RememberedIt’s November 11th, that time of year
We pause for a moment, perhaps, shed a tear
For each peacekeeper in a foreign grave
Canada’s finest, so young, so brave.

Each proudly wore his blue beret
and waved goodbye as they flew away
They kept the peace in each troubled place
and died in support of the human race.

Please take a moment, bow your head
In honour of our Peacekeeping dead
Our flag is edged with bars of red
In memory of those whose blood was shed.

So join with me and let’s all pray
For those heroes of the blue beret
Let us pray for peace and an end to war
Their names liveth forever more!
