I stood in Adam Park again

 

I stood in Adam Park again

Where forty years before

I, and gallant comrades

Defended Singapore.

 

On that spot we rallied,

Our final stand was made

Until the sad surrender

Found us weary and dismayed

 

I thought of years in prison camps

Just waiting to be free,

A freedom which so few of us

Were ever blessed to see.

 

I stood in Kranji cemetery

Midst war graves on a hill,

Each facing home to England

In that moment time stood still.

 

I thought of all those yesterdays,

What had it all been for

That such a lovely Island

Could have ever seen a war

 

Jesse Adams.
