Pulwama Terror Attack - The Soldier I Never Knew, Never Met But A Gratitude In My Heart For Him I Shall Forever Have. - Poem by Bernedita Rosinha Pinto

There sleeps a hero
whose life was so dear to him,
to his wife and his children
to his parents and his siblings.

There sleeps a hero
who was a soldier
and he has laid down his life
for his country and his duty.

There sleeps a hero
who was adorned with a national flag
and given a 21 Guns Salute
as he was laid to rest.

There sleeps a hero
whose name will be written
in the books of martyrs
and will be honored with a posthumous award.

There sleeps a hero
who will long be forgotten
but the days of pain and tears shall last forever
in the eyes of his old mother and children.

There sleeps a hero
who had put his own safety at risk
when he had chosen to defend his country
but he lost his young life to unexpected terror.

There sleeps a soldier
to whom we owe a heartful of gratitude
as our country will never be able to replace
to his mother the son that she has lost.

There was a soldier
who would have fought every war like a hero
but he died for our country all so suddenly,
how can we ever repay him for his sacrifice?

There sleeps a soldier
whom I never knew neither he knew me
whom I never saw, never met
but for me and my country he died like a hero, indeed!
