For My Brothers

Good Evening

I have been a lot of things in my life, one of which, many years ago was an infantry soldier. Tonight I am taking some time to think about my brothers from so long ago. Most of them have passed on, these young men who stood beside me, who supported me and with I shared so much are gone now only a very few of us remain. It seemed so very important tonight to take this moment just to honour the memories that they game me, the things they taught me, and the brotherhood that we shared.

Rest well, you did your duty

You are still my brothers in arms

Take Care and God Bless

Good Enough

Brothers in Arms

Mark Knopfler

This mist covered mountains
Are home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be

Some day you’ll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you’ll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I’ve witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher

And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There’s so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the suns gone to hell
And the moon is riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die

But it’s written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We’er fools to make war
On our Brothers in arms
