Love on border

He is just a soldier at the borders,
But he is the king of his wife’s world;
He sees different faces amidst guns and bombs,
But she keeps staring at a single photo from their album.

He lifts different weapons in hand,
But she carries his memories in her heart.
He waits for the call to hear her voice,
And she prays not to hear any bad news.

He gets excited for the holidays to meet her,
But she sheds tears as she knows,
Soon he will go back again.
