Only A Soldier

He goes at the dawn

he comes back at the last hint of dusk

He fights to save you

he fights to save me

Brave at heart, raring to go

He is the son of the motherland,

Who puts his nation first

And himself second.

He knows what is to be done

He thrives under danger

He is the man of many hearts

Who faces his faith without a frown

At last

He didn’t come in the dawn

he did not come at dusk

He fought, he fought

He fought for us

Made us winners

Lost his life

died with a smile


He was only a soldier
