D-Day – A Quiet Place

It’s quiet here … so quiet

Standing on this hill

But if I stand here too much longer

My eyes with tears will fill

Looking down … I’m there again

On that beach  just down below

Far different … to that morning

That I remember so

That beach … it was a hell on earth

Where no man  should ever go

I remember

I was down there

I should know

Don’t cry now … dear old soldier

That was many years ago
