We will remember Them All With The Poppies we lay.

Through the window she watches, on the seat she waits.

To show her respects as they pass the cottage gates.

Through the window once, not so long ago,

Dogs were waiting, but their masters didn’t show.

Countless widows and orphans, all waited in vain,

To hear a loved one, again, call out their name.

Never forget, the broken, or the sacrifices that are made

By our forces each day, as the poppies are laid.

        1. Or maybe You remember a different way. Poppies grow wild on the graves across France … Europe and red signifies the blood spilt in conflict. So on 11th day 11 month 11th hour we have 2min silence for the fallen of both world wars and lay poppy wreaths in each town city and village. We wear poppies on our lapels on the run up to that day, the military parade through the nearest Town to their bases. All monies for all the poppies go to maimed and injured service people. Armistice day is the day world war 1 ended.
