The ones who never got back home!

war memorial

You light up the sky as stars so bright,

You laid your life for a nation’s’ fight,

You never blinked at those treacherous heights,
Every breath in your sacred oath soulful delight,

You fluttered the tricolour at those dizzy heights,
Fully conscious of being wrapped in it that night,

You made the nation proud, your indomitable might,
We salute you and your family in gratitude infinite,

Death not be proud to see my frozen tear,
He is my hero who remains ever so dear
