At twilight prismed skies unfold,
The sun is sinking in the golden west
Painting the earth in hues of red,
Everything seems to be blanketed with the darkness of the night.
But there’s someone who is awake even as we sleep,
He forgoes his sleep and assures a peaceful sleep for us,
He’s duty bound day in and day out,
No high and low around can ever deter him.
Is this because he’s strong physically and emotionally
Or is it because he’s taken a vow to live for others.
Safety of his fellow beings is his topmost priority,
For he’s a kind soul,
He’s worn a soldier’s uniform
Putting at bay all the luxuries.
He is filled with pride as he is at the border,
Living for others has become his motto of life.
I bow my head in reverence to these great souls,
I’m sure no other soul can be as kind as him.
