Not all heroes wear capes

I got you son…!

Drooling kids we were

Worsened beds

Messed up clothes

An irony it is

The heroes we call

Never get an ovation

Neither a mere cape

For who they are

Just a saviour

Conquering all the love.

Came to a standstill though

A jolt right through the nerves

All the warmth he showered

Ceased in a nick of time

Knocked down seemingly

Starting all over again

From scratch

gleaming uncertainty

And guess what?

Unfathomable it is

These unsung heroes

Leaving us languishing

For the days ahead.

A steep fallout

Shivering,trembling cold

Drooping shoulders

questioned our identity

For why the destiny put forth

The grief before us

Well here’s what we needed

To “Outlive” our hero

And take pride in those little things

Painting a reminisce

In a garage fixing his car

Handing him over the tools

All in laughter

Running through chapters

Four of us

Making a whole

All it does

Exudes something

Worth silver and gold

To stand firm there

Stone cold,


Instilling valour

Yet doubtful

But we’ll sail through

Fears bottled up

Riding with innocence

Reaching out together

The four of us awake

His eyes all sparkled up

Making way for us

Across the blue lake.
