Why Should We Remember?

Why should we remember?
What happened in the war
Why should we remember?
What is it good for?
Why did the soldiers leave?

Why did they leave their sisters
Their mothers
Their children
Their brothers
They left so they could save us
And save the others too
But why did so many die?

Why so many young?
All the boys and all the girls
Who fell in the war
And were buried where they stood
So many had died
Died in different ways
So that’s why we remember
On this very important day
That’s why we remember
In all these different ways
