Painful Life...(Soldier's Last Words) .... - Poem by Sebastine Humaemo

Am a soldier mighty and strong
for the live 's I killed I never felt wrong
the pains and cries for others I gave
got me a name I am bold and brave
the final day it was
when I was shot and tossed

first time in my life I felt the pain
guess the sky felt it too hence started to rain
eyes started to close making me blind
few sweet little memories flashed in my mind
with tears running down I reached my purse
and the picture of my girl brushed me to nurse

I felt the picture getting wet in my palm
guess she is crying shedding tears in my arm
everything around me felt motionless and calm
the only sound I heard is her final kiss to my palm
I went to sleep forever like a motionless fly
after clutching her picture tight and bidding her bye....

    pain of loosing a loved one...going beyond the realm
    is much more painful than the actual physical pain.
    poignant write!
