Foggy London Town

Reason for Living

I have a reason to be living
Clearly all things I see
This is a time for giving
The perfect way to be
Putting away the sorrows
This is a brighter day
Swiftly I must borrow
A time to sit and pray
I could be sad
Or I can be mad
But that's out of reason
I'm the only one
I should be pleasing
So how I know
Here I go
This is my fate
It's giddy up go
I can't be late

A Soldiers Lament


For my Country tears I shed
Never more to be misled
I have done my duty
For what I think is right
My Nations Flag was
Never out of sight
For Country I have bled
Until the stream ran red
What I give so others live
To some a Hero song
It's all for thee for Liberty
And this Nation we belong


Fret not for me in infamy
Sorrow is short lived
I did what I had to do
This was mine to give
Memories they linger
From the Battlefield
My friends are long gone
They carry a Battle Shield


An Old Soldiers Lament
That lasts for ever more
Tribute to the Uniform
That he proudly wore
Loyally he served
Beside the very best
In the arms of the Lord
Finally put to rest
Never more to be forgotten
Lest we not forget


And I quote
" Old Soldiers never Die "
" They just Fade Away "
( General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964 )
