A Soldier’s Hospital Love Story ;)

Broken I lay on the hospital bed
My brothers around me
We’ve shed blood together for our motherland
Some with broken ribs and legs, others with broken hands

Doctors, nurses rushing all around
Sub-conscious me on the bed I am bound
Numbness all over, or is it the pain
When would I get up and fight those enemies again

Hands over me I can feel
Moved from bed, stretchers they reel
Masked I lay
Oblivion, it seems so grey

Sun rays in my eyes, it seems
To open them, some struggle I have to deal
Covered in bandages
Have I slept since ages?

Dressed in white,
My condition to doctor she recites
Routine it becomes
Every day for nursing me she goes and comes

My brokenness recuperates
Warmth for her within me enumerates
Though coldness in her eyes at times I see
Whenever the wound on my head she comes to clean

Slowly I rise on my feet again
My lost confidence I seem to gain
Small walks around the hospital I take
Hearing her giggle, my legs give themselves a break

Somebody says, Bed no. 35 is hot, isn’t he?
Oh, well I think that’s me!!
Curious, I am all ears
Hearing her, my heart almost tears

Oh, not at all
I hate that unclean stubble of his
So her coldness is now not anymore a suspense
Ah, my beard, it had become so dense

Routinely, she comes to check me
Surprise in her eyes I can see
My clean shaven look bowled her over
Affection in her hands, now she showers

Her fingers on my chin feel so soft
My spirit instantly now aloft
Sparks all-around of our Chemistry
Seems, this Soldier’s hospital love story is going down in history ;) ;)
