with mother waving from the door.
Within her heart a silent prayer,
from trembling lips,”Please do take care”.

So your country can live in peace,
to win the war, so conflicts cease

with blood matting his blonde hair.
A mother’s son is now at rest,
the countrys youth has done his best.

with bare heads bowing at your grave.
Thousands of men their lives to give,
