Brothers in Arms

Thousands of light years to cross

Yet the heart can bear with the very thought

You will still hold me when I would fall

You will save me when I won’t want.

Trillions of years we have already passed

Not just in memories or dreams

But in reality our friendship was never lost.

We grew up together like brothers

Not related to blood yet it wasn’t like others

You watched my back and I watched yours

And for years we walked without any fear.

Even when you went so far

I could feel you are still here

Looking after me aren’t you?

Its ok brother, I am ok.

Don’t you worry any more, I survived the war.

Light would take me to you someday

Like the sunset that took you away

I will hold you right here in my heart

I will keep you safe till eternity and so on

And the history would remember us as Brothers in Arms.
