Time Will Write History on You

(dedicated to all those perished in the coronavirus pandemic)
Time how cruel you are,
but Our devotion is far tougher still.
 
Fighting on,
We would continue penning
on your bosom
the history of our triumph.
 
You would remain a spectator
to our indomitable entity.
You would remain a listener
to our fame and glory.
You would turn into history
to carry our motto to our progeny. 
 
You would lose on the brink of winning.
We would win on the brink of losing.
 
We would stay alive, even after dying.
You would die even though living.
 
You’d rise again
like Phoenix from the ashes.
Our Progeny would fight again with you.
Pages in the history of triumph would multiply,
countless diyas would blow on our altar.
 
Time how cruel you are,
but Our devotion is far tougher still.
 
Fighting on,
We would continue penning
on your bosom
the history of our triumph.
 
You just watch.
