In the Fields of Flanders
With a badge of courage and a head held high
One word was said to the loved one, goodbye.
Hearts full of doubt not knowing their adventure,
Slowly unravelling the thread of their future.
A soldier holds a cross up, and then to his chest,
And runs with his gun praying for the best.
A letter gets delivered to a soldier family,
They all stand around while his wife opens it carefully.
He tells them how he misses them so,
And how the days pass by very slow.
Most of the soldiers don't get a chance to write,
They are too worried they will be shot tonight.
No colour in the soldiers' lives any more,
Who could bear that terrible war.
A gunshot was heard then an ear piercing scream,
One more down, another soul would gleam.
As the poppies grew taller and redder on the field,
The men would fight until a paper was revealed .
If the soldiers knew what was about to happen,
Would they make sure they were cherished and never forgotten.
In Flanders Fields a war begun,
In Flanders Fields a war was done.
