Remembering the Dead

On 15th April 1989, 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives at Hillsborough Stadium.  After years of cover-ups, an inquest found that they had been unlawfully killed and that the actions of the dead and the other fans had played no part.  At 3:06 pm, Liverpool will fall silent in their honour and, later, the bells of both cathedrals will ring out for them.  RIP.

 

When the town falls silent,

When it bows its head,

When the candles flicker

We’re remembering the dead.

When the bells are readied,

When the names are read,

When the prayers are muttered

We’re remembering the dead.

When we offer comfort,

When the truth is said,

When we shed a tear

We’re remembering the dead.

When the lives are honoured,

When justice lies ahead,

Then we’ll never walk alone

Remembering the dead.
