What We Owe

What We Owe
Alan Dennis

All died bravely most died scared

All young men no life was spared

They stayed in a country that was not theirs

Where we now go to say our prayers

To thank these men for what they did

Could we do the same or would we have hid

From boats they came to face the guns

Up sandy beaches which were not their own

No time for castles in the sand

They were here to free this foreign land

They faced the bullets and the steel

That we wont know what it's like to feel

For all these men that we don't know

Nothing can measure what WE owe
