War for Love

You know I love you
I love my country more
Enemies around like sharks
Can't hide in a bunker anymore

I kissed you deep
We were in love
The tides rocked our love boat
I have to calm the seas

Can't wait I have
to save my motherland
Pay any price but win
to be in your arms for ever

Am always with you my dear
in your heart and mind
Wipe away your tear
Shall be back soon my dear

I know it sounds hollow
War can't buy peace
Bombs shatter hearts
Guns can't teach love

Don't my enemies ever love
My guns keep booming
My eyes are wet
I call war for love

                                            On 26 Nov 2008, terrorists from Pakistan gunned down
                                            innocent children, women and men in Mumbai
                                            This is my tribute to the Policemen who risked their lives
                                            to save the civilians.

    Suresh, this is really touching and I know how I felt when I was in Mumbai.... I was in office and generally I used to take train from Churchgate but that time, I went straight from Lower Parel that day. Guess what, I had to go to VT that day but I didn't and this all happened and I was so upset with the loss of innocent lives that I can't explain....This is a good tribute to policemen.... keep writing, you are a good poet!

    Hi Suresh.This is a very moving tribute.There is much hurt and pain caused by some peoples distorted loyalty resulting in evil actions.Yet there is much love shown by loyalty to the truth that 'Allah is merciful','God is love'You've captured,the good and the bad in this piece so well and shared with us your loving heart,thank you.My gratitude goes out also to those brave men who defied evil in the name of love.They give us hope.My thanks also for your kind comments for my own work.Love June(S)
