The Pause

By 14th August 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

Could you spare just two minutes for a good cause
Can your really busy schedule afford the pause?
Just two very short minutes is all that we ask
Can you possibly spare them from your day long task?

Time is precious isn’t that what they always seem to say?
But what is two short minutes from one whole day?
We’ll only ask you for it on this one day each year
If time really is money such small change is never dear

One short pause in one day really means such a lot
It is those two minutes some have no longer got
There are some who will never again stand for this pause
They are those who gave life or limb for the cause

So please as you rush by on your much hurried way
Spare two important minutes on this Remembrance Day
