In Gratitude of Silence
By: Debbie Holick
Silent now the soldiers sleep, their tales long laid to rest.
I knew them not yet still I weep and place a poppy o'er my breast.
They were husbands, brothers, fathers, sons; so valiantly they fought.
On shores stained red,on hands and knees; it was our freedom that they sought.
Couageously they stood their ground but freedom carries a cost.
Thousands of men were wounded and countless lives were lost.
So in gratitude of silence and all those who have served,
sleep now, you have earned it. Your peace is well deserved.
The Board and the Membership of Yorkton Business Improvement District (YBID), wish to recognize and honor the sacrifice of all those that give and have given so courageously, so that we may all be free.
We, shall always remember.
