Lest We Forget ~ Poem of Remembrance by Natalie Ducey

Lest We Forget ~ A tribute and a prayer. ♥

It’s with a humble and most grateful heart that I’d like to share the poem LEST WE FORGET. May we collectively honour all past and present serving members and respectfully show our profound gratitude for their service and sacrifice. 

I extend a warm welcome to all to visit our website, PEACE BY PIECE PUZZLES, where you can view and print LEST WE FORGET. This poem is available for free via our website. It’s a PDF file (8.5 X 11) available to download and print.

I’d be most grateful for your support in sharing this message, as we (my sister (Nicole) and I) are trying to distribute it far and wide. May we all unite to honour and support all those who’ve sacrificed so much for the freedoms we hold dear.

Lest We Forget



They answered the call
With mighty hearts they took a stand
In the pursuit of liberty
They died on foreign land.

Those that made it home
Carry a burden within their soul
More years behind them now
Yet stories remain untold.

We may never understand it
Few hearts can comprehend
The courage one must possess
To rise and take a stand.

So I ask of you this
Dear friends and family
How will you remember
This most earnest legacy?

Will you bow your head in silence?
Offer a silent prayer?
Let’s honour all they’ve sacrificed
For the freedoms we hold dear.

With much gratitude.

    1. Thank you, Mae! My husband is a soldier and served in Afghanistan and other overseas missions. During the Afghanistan mission we lost 158 soldiers. So many were from Petawawa. The sorrow runs deep in our town. So very grateful to all who served and served today.

      1. So thankful for your husband’s service, Natalie, and so sorrowful for those lives that were lost. My dad served during WWII in the Pacific theatre. Someday, hopefully, we will be able to put wars behind us. In the meantime, as you said….so very grateful to all who served and who serve today!
