Heroes of 26/11



I penned a few lines for the courageous men who sacrificed their lives 4 years ago to save ours on 26/11... If not for them, we wouldnt be here today...

You died, so we could live to tell our story



I watched silently as your citation was read 
Your family accepting your posthumous glory 
I choked and tears streamed down my cheeks
Coz you had died, so we could live to tell our story 

We didn't meet you, neither did we know you 
Yet you are now part of our memory
You protected us till your last breath
You died, so we could live to tell our story 


Had you promised to meet your old parents over winter? 
Your wife, the beaches fresh & airy?
We are indebted for your every unfulfilled wish
Coz you died, so we could live to tell our story 


Proud parents, wives, families & friends
Swells with pride, the whole country
Your valour, your commitment set an immortal example

 Coz you died, so we could live to tell our story 

If not for you, hundreds would have met the dust 
With your sacrifice, you created history
We got back some more days ,some more years
 Coz, you died, so we could live to tell our story
