We Will Keep The Torch Burning...

Your lives were cut short amidst our struggle

Your loved ones, you couldn't even give a cuddle

Daily and yearly, your sacrifice will our memories juggle

Forever in our hearts, you will always be

Even when the powers that be tried to bury evidence

To absolve themselves of judgement and grave sentence

They pitched their tents with the devil surrounded by a huge fence

Trying to make themselves untouchable

But you are our heroes, we light up - torchable

We will continually hold the torch for you

We will keep the torch burning for you

In solidarity of your gallant effort on the battlefield

In respect of the course, you died for

In the power of the message your courage wield

You are now forever part of our shield

We will keep the torch burning

And your death will not be in vain

This is not just words for gainsaying

We are not going to become those who hurt us

But we would seek to see justice for all

It won't be business as usual again for them
