He came home for vacations to see his mother, father
wanted to create some splendid moments,
To meet his wife and daughter
thinking this time he will take them on tour ;
The mother thought of having cup of tea with her son
and wife wanted to go to a party for fun,
The Dad wanted to discuss some global news with son
and daughter wanted to recite some poem with hon ;
But then started some warfare at border front
and he got the call to come back ,to perform duty stunts.
So a Soldier, a Son,a Father & a Husband webbed in catch – 22
for family love and motherland dove
and had to choose only one ;
The culture infused in him ,made Motherland love his priority
not the mother who gave him love up to infinity.
Left home with wet eyes and promising hands
in blasphemy that he will come back,
he will come back.
But did he ?
Only few wives and mothers get chance
to nod yes as the answer.
A soldier is always an important part of every country’s system. My poetry is just an expression of what an army man’s life go through and a little tribute to his enormous contribution in keeping our motherland safe.
Jai Hind !!!
