Women for Soldiers

November 08, 2013 13 Comments

While they fight, the battles of their life,
their wives fights an even bigger battle
all within themselves,
little angst, little pride

they pray for nothing
but safe return of their men
Some prays that they stay secure
and reach back their home

prisoners of war
leaves their widows behind
a history of love and compassion
but future devoid of even sunshine

These women make merry
that war is over now
still some fear
for their men' where-how?

She cheers him up
when he leaves for the frontiers
and fights back her on fears
she is no less than a warrior

let's cheer for the women
who marries a soldier
who raise her child to a Sepoy,
and nurtures a whole generation thereafter

The nation thrives 
cause of two of it's honorable men
One, an Indian Farmer
Another, Indian Armed force-Men!

    Behte hue ashq bhi kalaam karte hain..!
