The Letter - Poem by Areena Arora

Packed with words
and with feelings tight
wrote he, a letter
in fright, in little light

A letter for his child
for his mother, for his wife

perhaps he knew
with a sigh, he thought
he wasn't sure
about his own return

he knew no bounds
of the blood sheds
he was to face
though he had faith
his letter would reach
and he knew beneath
it would cause a stormy pain

And as expected it was
he couldn't survive
but the letter did reach

no more words
a dreadful silence-so long
against the winds-swift
tears dropped
and the family cried

Then the moment next
a flag wrapped soldier arrived
salutes and gun-shots
fired above in pride

The moment then
tears dried and cried woke
and saluted the nation to...
the soldier who wrote THE LETTER.....
