War Stories

My grandfather told me stories about war,
Many men went across sea, one man Nick Jeddore.

Sadly my grandfathers uncle had to go too,
To save freedom for me and for you.

Taking his belongings, leaving family behind,
Not knowing where to go, not knowing what to find.

The chilling thoughts of death running through his mind,
The guns, the bombs, fighting against all man kind.

Family in wonder with tears in their eyes,
And how hard it was to say their goodbyes.

Some men died, while others survived,
But they are all happy they made a difference in our lives.

So remember these people, where now they lay,
Remember these people on Remembrance Day.
