They said you fought valiantly with no fear
They said you looked enemy in the eye
Before he put you to sleep forever
They brought you home wrapped in the Tricolor
They all talked about how brave you had been
“You must be proud.” They said enviously
I quietly looked at them, in anguish….
Months have gone since I bid you last goodbye
They do not come anymore to ask or tell
Your heroic deeds are buried deep now
inside my lonely heart where I meet you
Your wet eyes still hold thousands promises
But my distrustful heart wonders if you
Had thought of me before you were martyred?
