A Great Soldier Yet To Be Seen

A Great Soldier Yet To Be Seen...... The day when I met you Your attitude impressed me in my mind and heart You are known to everyone as a great yesterday soldier for our country. You were distinguished soldier, an officer, a man among men. You are the most valuable gift for our country Your contribution to the World War II is unforgettable. Your Knowledge on military is a precious gift for our young soldiers. You loved our country and you did the best for her. Today, you are away from us, living by yourself Your marched forward legs are stands still today. You be the best what ever you are and where ever you are. But the love you have shown on us will cherish in our heart forever. As bible says LOVE is patient and kind and let that faith surround you. You are a great soldier for the all time and yet to be seen Ravi Sathasivam / Sri Lanka All rights are reserved @ 2018 - Ravi Sathasivam

This is a very fitting tribute to a man who served his country with courage. If my search was correct, he died in 2002. Regards // paul
