Defending The Realm
The soldier raises his gun one last time
The Nazis are on the march
He is out numbered but he refuses to yield
They are fighting in the streets
He is situated at the corner of a building
He shoots at the enemy
He takes out three German soldiers
But another seven remain
One of the German soldiers and takes aim
And kills the brave British soldier
He falls to his knees
And then keels over
He breathes his last breath
The war continues but the soldier has done his job
He resisted the evil tyrants
Back home his wife and child wait for news of their husband and father
Some days later a letter arrives in the post
The wife opens the letter with tears in here eyes
She know by the envelope that the news is bad
As she reads the letter she sobs uncontrollably
Many years on the wife is in France to visit her husband's grave
Her grown up son accompanies her
They stand by the graveside and read the inscription
"A beloved husband and father
Who died to save our freedom"
They lay down some flowers and utter some silent prayers
As they walk away her son speaks to his mothers
"Some things are worth dying for whatever the price"
"To live in freedom rather then under tyranny is the greatest gift of all"
"Sometimes we have to make sacrifices for things we believe in"
The son later married and had three children
And they lived comfortably and at peace
All thanks to their father and grandfather
Who will always be remembered for his bravery and courage.
