As he ties his laces each time, he knows he’s fighting for his Nation..
He would return or not he’s not concerned, nevertheless he lacks no determination.
Shivers run down the spine, when I see the men in uniform..
They stand like pillars in all weathers, be it scorching heat, freezing cold or hailstorm.
Are we worth fighting for, are we the ones for whom he is sacrificing his days and nights,
Shouldn’t we be better humans, should we still continue our trivial, shallow fights..??Simi
I have waited really long, and I long to be with you again,
Your presence makes me safe and snug, in the blazing sun, beach or rain.
I know you are far from us, for the country needs you too,
But Dad I am growing fast, the moments of my childhood remain very few. “
They packed up all they had, to move to the new location,
It was a call of duty for the soldiers, not a mere vacation.
Nature tried its best to allure, the clouds followed them for long…
The mountain stood tall as the dreamy valley sung, the most mesmerizing song.”
With great strength she steers through the day, and then the clock halts, so abrupt..
There she sits in the dusk wondering, if her loneliness, this cruel time would ever disrupt.
She smiles, as she looks back at the memories, which were framed in the warmth of the wood,
Her heart was with her soldier, yet very valorously through the trials of time she stood.
“Dad i accept, you ought to return, the nation needs you more,
Nevertheless my little heart, beats loud, like the waves on the sea shore.
Trust me father, i will be a strong boy, will take care of mom and sis,
Still i want to honestly confess, it’s you, whom, i always miss !”Simi
