Anzac Day – we will never forget

Scroll down to content

Every year I attend dawn service for Anzac Day. Every year the crowd grows. Every year I watch younger generations joining in with the older generations connected in spirit to remember those who fought for our country and lost their lives. Every year I cry for those we lost. On this day, every year I could not be more proud to be Australian.

Courage, tenacity, spirit and mateship was the essence of these heroic men. Many of those were the age of my generation sons.

We will never forget ❣️

I wrote this poem last year ❤️

25th April 1915

Saw an armada of ships

On the coast line of turkey convene

.

.

Our troops descended upon the shore

Of foreign lands never tread upon before

In the dark of dawn, the wrong destination

Led sadly to the many casualties of war

.

.

Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

Courageous & resilient

Let us not forget those casualties of wars

.

.

Our fathers, our brothers

Sons of proud and sad mothers

Cousins, uncles, our mates

This sad war sealed over 60,000 of our owns fates

.

.

More wars, more departures followed

In solemn silence,

our nation’s grief was swallowed

.

.

25th April 2019

Dawn service

Aussie’s all over the world convene

.

.

We remember there lives 104 years on

Mateship, sacrifice, heroes

The highest honor, the highest award to all of you

Australia bestows

.

.

We will never forget

.

.

Signed A Proud Australian
