End of An Era

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Another anniversary arrives, again more tears to shed.
It’s the saddest day of the year for many a devoted Red.
The flowers are out in numbers, the scarves they multiply.
On the many cards I see, the message reads simply ‘why’?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Now Twenty seven years on and the pain it gets no less.
The songs and hymns are beautiful for every soul to bless.
There are victims too, for whom no candle is lit in their name.
I remember those people too, with total respect the same.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 This will be the last service to be held in our Anfield home.
The end of an era is upon us, the saddest era I’ve ever known.
The choir facing The Kop, the last chance to hear them sing.
The final candles have been lit, time for the final bell to ring.
