a poem by Edwin Keith Jepson, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

Light a candle,
In every church,
In every chapel,
And in every home,
For the soldier,
The brave young soldier,
Who in our hearts,
Will forever roam,
In the play ground,
On the dance floor,
In the country,
We still see him now,
The brave young soldier,
When we were children,
And then he grew up,and made a vow,
To fight for freedom,
For his children,
So they would grow up,
And find release,
This brave young soldier,
A doting Father,
Who risked his life,
For the sake of peace,
