Poem: “Coming Home”
The war has come to an end
It’s the time to return to our land,
Scent of the fields miles away, I feel
Wounds of my body start then to heal;
Years passed since I saw you,Mom!
Your soldier’s now coming home;
Friends,wish you all “Bon Voyage”!
With me,you all stood with courage,
Bravely,you all fought till the last
Our country’s slavery is now the past;
These eyes longed to see the dawn
The soldier’s now coming home;
But,the battle if calls me again
To save my country’s name,
As to set the battle-field in fire
This fighter will never retire;
Till the last,I’ll face the storm
And the soldier’ll be coming home.
