Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?

Merry Christmas from Germany.

I want to share a German war poem with you. It's about fallen soldiers, living on in our remembrance and keeping guard of successor generations. I think it's timeless and suits for every nation.

Einmal im Jahr, in der heiligen Nacht,
verlassen die toten Soldaten die Wacht,
die sie für Deutschlands Zukunft stehen.
Sie kommen nach Haus, nach Art und Ordnung zu sehen,
schweigend treten sie ein in den festlichen Raum,
den Tritt der genagelten Stiefel, man hört ihn kaum
sie stellen sich still zu Vater und Mutter und Kind,
aber sie spüren, daß sie erwartete Gäste sind.

Es brennt für sie eine rote Kerze am Tannenbaum,
es steht für sie ein Stuhl am gedeckten Tisch,
es glüht für sie im Glase dunkel der Wein.
Und in die Weihnachtslieder, gläubig und frisch,
stimmen sie fröhlichen Herzens mit ein.
Hinter dem Bild mit dem Stahlhelm dort an der Wand
steckt ein Tannenzweig mit silbernem Stern.
Es duftet nach Tannen und Äpfeln und Mandelkern,
und es ist alles wie einst und der Tod ist so fern.

Wenn dann die Kerzen am Lichtbaum zu Ende gebrannt,
legt der tote Soldat die erdverkrustete Hand
jedem der Kinder leise aufs junge Haupt:
Wir starben für euch, weil wir an Deutschland geglaubt.

Einmal im Jahr, in der heiligen Nacht,
beziehen die toten Soldaten wieder die ewige Wacht.

English translation:

Once a year, in the holy night,
the dead soldiers leave the watch,
which they guard for Germany's future.
They come home to look after kind and order,
silently they enter the festive room,
the step of the nailed boots, you hardly hear it,
they silently stand by father and mother and child,
but they feel that they are expected guests.

It burns a red candle on the Christmas tree for them,
there is a chair for them at the table,
it glows darkly in their glass of wine.
And in the carols, believing and fresh,
they tune in with a happy heart.
Behind the picture with the steel helmet there on the wall,
there is a pine branch with a silver star.
It smells of fir and apples and almonds,
and it's all as it used to be and death is so far away.

Then, when the candles burnt down on the Christmas tree,
The dead soldier puts his earth-encrusted hand,
quietly to each of the children on the young head.
We died for you because we believed in Germany.

Once a year, in the holy night,
the dead soldiers once again receive the eternal watch.
