ETERNAL SOLDIERS~by Jyotirmaya Thakur




Image may contain: one or more people

Truth is the sword,love is their reward,
Soldiers fight for bright future forward,
Peaceful prosperity for one and all,
For all our children’s dreams take a toll.

The motherland for which untiring toil,
For countries in reverence of their soil,
Family’s don’t know sacrifices they make,
Peace is restored by whatever it takes.

They keep fighting for meek to empower,
Fight against tyrants cruel threats sour,
Dictators who spread fear and terror,
Full of courage are such brave warriors.

Their blood and bones destiny set course,
Homeward journey at mercy of gunshots torn,
Their sun in foreign valleys rise and set,
For tomorrow’s bright dawn they never rest.

A destination unknown, unseen depths,
With persistent disciplined loyal steps,
Move on their military missions quest,
Make a difference to Atlas as blessed guest.

The soldiers hope never diminish it seems,
Powerful tanks on ground or dark seas ,
Dangerous steep hills or dragon full skies,
Their soul rises to calls in valiant size.

Let their memory be honoured in peace,
Their service acknowledged in seven seas,
Let the eight continents borderless meet,
Universal soldiers be respected in eternal sleep.
