|The Peebles Quadrangle (War Memorial)|
On this special day,
Many of us will bow our heads and pray.
Whether we join together and form a crowd,
To demonstrate that we are proud.
Or, quietly at home take time to reflect,
It is our way of showing respect.
You gave us our freedom.
Your courage was selfless, but the price was high for your wisdom.
The love you had for your country was proven by your refusal to yield.
Resulting you paying with your life on the battlefield.
For that, we shall always remember,
On this day and forever.
