The Flame of Remembrance Day


The burning candle in our hearts never fades.
This light knows neither time nor distance.
Voices may continue to echo from every direction.
As we pause in contemplation,
portraits of bright faces light up joyful memories.

Because of those who sacrificed their lives for peace,
we live freely, enjoying our daily lives.
Their spirits continue to live on,
in the sunshine, in the rain and in our prayers.
Once each year Remembrance Day shines ever so brightly
when we keep the memories and the flame alive.
