With the hope of them returning safe soon,
a mother blinked away a tear.
With prayers rising high above the skies,
a wife suffered the anguish of fear.
Brothers and sisters of the nation being more important,
sacrifice, was a mere understatement.
While thousands will be celebrated all through the world’s history,
It will be your victory.
While all of us would return to dust covered in white,
You, will be lying wrapped, in the tricoloured flag,
conducting all your might.
And, that soft smile across your brave face,
Makes us salute, and pay homage.
