We never think about our soldier ‘s in our army who are always ready to do anything for the safety of our nation, our motherland. This is a short poem which I guess would tell our reader about what sacrifices they do for us.
We both left home at 18,
You cleared JEE,
I got recommended.
You got IIT,
I got NDA.
You persuaded you degree,
I had the toughest training.
Your day started at 7 and ended at 5,
Mine started at 4 till 9 and some nights were also included.
You had your convocation ceremony,
I had my POP.
Best company took you and best package was awarded,
I was ordered to join my paltan with 2 stars piped on my shoulders.
You got a job,
I got a way of life.
Every evening you got to see your family,
I just wished I got to see my parents soon.
You celebrated festivals with lights and music,
I celebrated with my comrade in bunkers.
We both married,
Your wife got to see you everyday,
My wife just wished I was alive.
You were sent to business trips,
I was sent on line of control.
We both returned,
Both wives couldn’t control their tears, but you wiped hers but,
You hugged her but,
Because I was lying in the coffin, with medals on my chest and coffin wrapped with the tricolour.
My way of life ended.
We both left home at 18.
