Between The Battlefields (Christmas 1915)
By Paul McCann

On a Christmas Eve long ago,
as a war was being fought,
somewhere on the western front,
a hint of mercy had been caught .

A lonely voice sang out a song
that brought hope and peace for all .
For a while the war was over
and each soldier heard the call .

It was silent night in no mans land
where fear chose not to be.
Soldiers laid down their weapons
and there was no more enemy .

It was 1915 and peace came down to earth for a while .
In no mans land they shared stories
and exchanged a friendly smile .

For the British and the Germans
it was a special Christmas .
Christ the child had brought a light
but then the silent night had passed .

The next day hundreds were killed
by those who once had shook their hand ,
The guns of war were firing again
and blood bathed no mans land .
