Here I sit on a lonely park bench,
I try hard to forget the shallow, dark trench,
I try hard to forget the filth and blood,
And the bodies of friends lying in the mud.
I try to forget that feeling of fear,
As a German patrol drew closer and near,
I try hard to forget taking a life,
That man I killed would’ve had a child and wife.
I WILL remember the friends I have lost,
And the war that happened at such a great cost,
I can now feel myself slipping away,
I knew that I’d see my friends one day.
