The Eve Before War

The Eve Before War

2 mins
475


There was a sense of contentment

And a chivalry night

Where there were army men with their wives

In a ball organized full of lights.


Those red bangles of a newly wed girl

Where one sees the wait in her eyes

The longing to see her husband

And the urge of her for him to sit beside.


But then suddenly something happens

The joyful voices change to sorrowful fears

The sounds of guns and grenades

Is all what they could hear.


The hands which were holding the glasses of champagne

Were changed with the hands holding guns

And the only philosophy of 'no pain,no gain'.


Now the night would fall

And the morning will rise

Where the soldiers would again go for a battle

And there will be a waiting in their beloved ones' eyes.


It's been nine days

Since the war started

And it feels like years

When the beloved ones parted.


The war has now come to a halt

Instead of 'red' bangles , there is 'red' blood all around

The voices of glory have been replaced with the voices of 'mourning'

The glasses of champagne were replaced

With the broken 'glass' pieces lying all around in the battle field.


In so many families, where the night fell

And now there will be no sign of the rising sun

The marriage which was just 'nine' months old

The baby who was just 'nine' days old

Who was longing to see his father

Maybe those dreams would never come true

That reality that won't ever happen

With the war, there were so many lives which also came to a halt.
