Only A Soldier

He goes at the dawn
he comes back at the last hint of dusk
He fights to save you
he fights to save me
Brave at heart,raring to go

He is the son of motherland
Who puts his nation first
And himself second

He knows what is to be done
He thrives under dangers

He is the man of many hearts
Who faces his faith without a frown

At last
He didn't come in the dawn
he did not come at dusk
He fought , he fought
He fought for us
Made us winners
Lost his life
died with a smile
Because
He was only a soldier


~This poem is dedicated to all the soldiers who lay their lives protecting us~

Nicely penned thoughts.
They fight for us.They will always...I hope,there will be a day when there will not be any borders to protect.

Amen "fizz"ing inside!!! I really hope there will be a day when there will not be any borders to protect. And mothers will not have to sacrifice their sons for a thankless multitude, wives won't be widowed, children won't be orphaned...proud as they are of the ones they lost, nothing can fill that placed in their lives.

Thanks Aditi for the poem...beautiful!
