A brave child

A brave child

1 min 318 1 min 318

He won medals not in academics but in wars

He won hearts not of his parents but of the mass

He has suffered burden not of his work but of his livelihood

He has earned not only money but the respect of others.

 

Now he is of 72 years of his age

He looks for a support

Near to him everyday

 

 He lost his wife

He lost his emotional backbone

He lost his son

And his mental peace at whole

 

He is broken deep inside of his heart

He is no more living, sad and hurt for the most part

 

He has a grand daughter

He looks forward to her for everything

She gives smiles on his face

She gives strength to that old child

Making compromises every next day

 

He is gaining courage again

He is gaining love again

 

He is no more helpless

He is no more weak

just laying down in a coffin

seems to smile at everyone crying for him

and blessing his grand daughter who lost his first father at eighteen!
