Memorial Day – Less We Forget

My wife and I spent the morning at the National cemetery at the Memorial Day ceremony. An amazing event. 



Sands Of Kuwait 

Here I sit so far from my home

Here I sit with my thoughts alone

Thoughts of my kin, thoughts of my love

Thoughts of the hills and clouds above

No green can I see; all seems barren to me

No stream running by to a bountiful sea

No trees with their shade, no cool summer’s breeze

No soft words to cheer me

 

The sands of Kuwait stretch far from the eye

Here we shall live or here we shall die

So pray for us all, my comrades and me

That we may return safe back home to thee

Our thoughts are with you, our loved ones at home

But here for a while the sands we must roam

A boundless expanse – no end can I see

As boundless my dear as my love for you

 

I recall when first we met

At the fair on that warm summer day

Your eyes so bright, your hair flowing free

A smile full of joy and laughter so gay

A heart full of care wherever you go

A heart ever true whene’er I must roam

Fate smiled on me then, oh smile once again

And lead me back home

 

The sands of Kuwait stretch far from the eye

Here we shall live or here we shall die

So pray for us all, my comrades and me

That we may return safe back home to thee

Our thoughts are with you, our loved ones at home

But here for a while the sands we must roam

A boundless expanse – no end can I see

As boundless my dear as my love for you
