O Revered Soldier

O Revered Soldier

1 min 13.4K 1 min 13.4K

Your lifelong preparedness

To defend our motherland

Against dreadful enemies

Ensures normalcy all around.


Your incessant, alert vision,

Drawing inspiration from your dogged discipline,

Earns us all a peaceful sleep

Bereft of any fear or fuss.


Your grit to survive,

Against all odds,

To crush the opponents upfront,

Lends us all a lesson or two.


Your rare lessons of sacrifice

Scattered across the life's path

Oft challenge the high decibel

Of our plastic pledges.


Your ardent agonies, O Revered Soldier,

For not seeing your child's first smile

Or your grandma's last, shall never go in vain,

And win you in turn a lasting smile

On the face of our motherland.
