No Glory

Tags: war, love, valour, pride

In honour of my Great Grandfather

No glory, only pride

You played your part in a theatre where so many died

On foreign soil, a strange language

Memories of the old country in your heart

Again and again you took to the air

I can barely imagine your bravery

The noise, the engines, guns

If you were afraid, I understand

Then to return to find your best friend gave his life

The hollow victory, the pain

Then the end came and you could return to your wife

Victory, but no glory... only pride.
