A Letter from My Son

The most awakening sound, that used to be

Is to hear the bell of the postman

As every second, every minute

It was the only thing I wanted to hear

I run around with joy

I shed a happy tear

When I receive a letter

From my son, my hero

My life, my gift to the world

I am always proud to say,

“My son is in the battle field,

Fighting with our foes

To protect our motherland,

To protect every common being”

But today,

Why am I standing here in dismay?

With tears filled in my eyes.

But not tears of joy or happiness,

But tears filled with grief and sorrow.

Same as the tears I shed,

The first time I sacrificed him

For the well being of the human race

But today is it different or is it the same?

Because I have to say goodbye

Once again,

But this time from my heart

As everything will only be a memory,

Because he is lying in front of me

This is emotional piece Shalindri. Heroes are remembered for sacrificing themselves for humanity cause. Their race is never in vain. What I love about this piece is the inner feeling poured out in words. I believe now you are fresh and ready to conquer the world. Today is different because in his loose the world will never be the same again!
