Soldier's Wife - Poem by Mula Veereswara Rao

Soldier’s Wife

She is waiting,
Waiting with eyes filled with dreams,
Reciting his heroic deeds,
In the deep woods!

He has full vigor,
Gone to the war,
With lion’ roar!

Seasons have changed
Spring became autumn
But no sign of his return

His horse came without him
Remorse gushed in her heart

He is no more!
His absence became her life’s core

Unable to bear sorrow-ocean
She decided to commit suicide
On his beside!

From tomb,
Her hero reminded her
His memory in her ‘womb’

She realized her purpose
She knows
Making child as soldier is a pain
But she did so that realm regains again
