        To go like them!

Anushka

       The winds of terror, in snow clad terrain
       The scream of bullets-that deafens the brain.
       The fear of end is so near
       And it haunts the eyes-
       But the determination to fight
       Dominates the mind!

       The fear no longer stays within
       No care about - anything,
       Oblivious to fate and what destiny holds
       They charge right in dropping enemies like poles.
       They fight like warriors
       Stories of whom we have heard
       They kill like brave soldiers
       Leaving stories untold!

       The final hour is here
       The fright has gone
       And so has the pain.
       The faces that loved them
       And those they cherished
       Reach out from far-
       Never, to meet again.
       But the glow of satiety
       And contentment stays
       To have done their duties
       And protected the name!"

       To go like them
       An honor so rare!
       Their offerings
       Have not been in vain,
       We respect and salute them
       Each day -
       And shall always!
