I breathed into you,
As I cried when I was born.
Unaware was I, at that time,
That I would be yours forever.
I saw you stained in red,
Of my brethren.
I felt, you choked beneath
The boots of the foreigners.
I vowed to save our friendship
That had bloomed into a tiny bud now.
The bud that wanted to wear the crown of freedom
In the air that embraced me first.
I was desperate to let you free,
And didn’t hesitate to lose my life.
I failed to liberate you
But died with a smile of content.
I was sure that my love for you,
Would spread like a wildfire throughout.
And inspire every single soul,
To make this bond stronger.
