LEST WE FORGET

Post by Guest on Wed Nov 11, 2009 12:09 am

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning.
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

THE FINAL
INSPECTION

The soldier stood and faced
God,

Which must always
come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were
shining,
Just as brightly as his
brass.

'Step forward now, you
soldier,
How shall I deal with you ?
Have
you always turned the other cheek ?
To My
Church have you been true?'

The soldier
squared his shoulders and said,
'No, Lord, I
guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry
guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've
had to work most Sundays,
And at times my
talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been
violent,
Because the world is awfully
rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That
wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot
of overtime,
When the bills got just too
steep.

And I never passed a cry for
help,
Though at times I shook with
fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've
wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't
deserve a place,
Among the people
here.
They never wanted me around,
Except
to calm their fears.

If you've a place
for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so
grand.
I never expected or had too
much,
But if you don't, I'll
understand.

There was a silence all
around the throne,
Where the saints had often
trod.
As the soldier waited quietly,
For
the judgment of his God.

'Step forward
now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens
well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's
streets,
You've done your time in
Hell.'
