The Poet: I Might Not Returned


Keep the flower,
when you miss me smell
it, I will be the fragrance.

I might not return
One thing is certain
I will be there to protect
your brighter future.

The enemies of your
tomorrow are ransacking
our nation, we will go
and kill them all.

In case if they kill us,
we have tried our best
at our beats with they beasts.

Even though we fail you,
forgive us, we will give our
lives for our land.

Tell your mama l love you all,
when you grow into a woman
be supportive to your spouse.

I pray, I will return to see
you growing up, but I am afraid,
I might not,
The Almighty will be
your strength.
