“May call your family”,the major shouted
To the soldiers who were armed and shielded
“You are going to fight a great war for your nation “
“Never know if you will come back in the same condition “.
Everyone called except one
He was former Brigadier’s son
His father died in the war front
When how to walk….this little boy had yet to learn.
“Want to call your mother?”
“No ,I don’t want her to bother”
The war was long ,lasted till the night
Followed by a loud explosion that came to major’s sight.
Among the corpse that he found
He heard that soldier’s sound
I want to speak to her before I leave
I want to feel her breath …before I sleep
“When are you coming back home ?”was the first thing she asked on receiving his call
“why is so much commotion out there are you in the assembly hall!”
The major has granted my application,I am coming soon..
Mom ..I m feeling cold but I don’t see the moon.
“Take proper care of yourself I plead”
…right now it’s your hug is all that I need
“When are you coming back?its a question no new. “
Maa …my breath is falling short ..I can’t hear but see you
She kept the phone and gave a bright smile
It was bright enough to be seen from a mile
The last thing that she heard of him was a sigh
Which said he was coming g back from where he had started and was never gonna say goodbye. …
