Marriotts remember November 2023


As a poppy grows on the edge of my street,

It makes me think, it makes me weep,

The day you died I will not forget,

I did not know you, we have not met,


You fought so hard the young & old,

Shoulder to shoulder, brave & bold,

Thousands upon thousands by land, air & sea,

You gave your life so I could be free,


So, I will remember the fallen,

And I will honour you with pride,

I will remember the 11th of November,

I will tell people why you have died,


Goodbye my friend & thank you,

For this life I have is good,

I will think of this little red flower,

I am sending you all my love.
