All War's Must End

Flowers placed upon his grave
The ultimate sacrifice he made

Dying in war in a foreign land
So many people still don’t understand

Why that war doesn’t end
So many killed, so many must mend

So many friends came to say goodbye
No one who attended had a dry eye

A wife who’s husband has been lost
His service came at a very high cost

Children who’ll never see their Dad again
Pain in their hearts that just won’t end

The service now has been completed
But so many more will be needed

Strength, hope and a will to survive
Memories will keep their memory alive

Those who die in any war
Are all heroes for evermore
