A Hundred Years On (a nod to Wells, Kipling and Edmonds)

A hundred years have rolled on by 
Still we remember all who died
In trenches, air, on sea and sand 
For our homeland ~ for our homeland 

Was said, "The war to end all wars"
Will blood be spilled for evermore?
Have we not learned, from their regret? 
"Lest we forget ~ lest we forget"

The bugle calls, the tears they fall
For us they bravely gave their all 
Their tomorrows, for our todays
We throw away ~ we throw away

Let's now finally, warfare cease 
Instead let's learn to live in peace  
So that their deaths were not in vain 
Let love remain ~ let love remain
