Token of Courage

It was really unbelievable for her first She was not ready to accept it as well But truth is a strong dictator Who never listen to anybody's likes or dislikes And make people understand it's power He whom she eloped with is just a body now The courageous army man dedicated his life to his mother land Never did he thought twice before volunteering to be a part of battalion who were leaving to border that faces a never ending attack Nor did he thought of his wife who had left everything to live with him He deliberately forgot the smile of his 2 year old baby That's he A genuine soldier who thinks of the nation first National flag and uniform was there in each of his heart beat Everyone leaves her after his funeral She and his memories along with a little baby remains there unmoved To live without him was not there even in her wildest dreams It will be painful for her to accept the fact It will take time for her to move on Darkness will be what she see for a long time Depression will become the ruler of her mind Tears and haunting memories will become her daily companion This are all what we think But her thoughts were more on her daughter No one who knows her will blame her motherhood But how can she be a father as well He showed his strength when situation demanded Now the world is going to see hers She can't fail as she is the better half of naton's saviour And she will not as she knows he will be watching her from the heaven

Anju, a sad yet powerful message you have expressed here. Alas, this has been the plight of too many left behind. Best to you as you continue your poetical journey. Bob
