You kissed each of your mother's hands
And left that note in case you don’t come back.
Inside you confirmed the eternity of your love
Asked her to be strong and never give up.
You promised her after darkness there is light
And after death there comes life.
Then you signed it off with a word of love
Telling her you're proud to be her son.
And you left your house that day
Never knowing if you'll be back again;
Because every time you leave your home,
There's a likely chance you will be gone.
But that day was the one you lived for.
It happened just like you dreamed,
While looking in the eyes of your foe
And in His name you screamed.
It only took one shot,
To get you there and across.
But in your heart you knew you won't be gone
You believed your memory will live on.
So from your spirit I pray the world can heal
And to your actions they take heed
Because you're the one they call shaheed.
