Well fought Varun now Gone Forever by Maj Gen Abhi Parmar, VSM (Retd)



Well fought Varun now gone forever

Who never said die never said never

You had the guts to challenge the death

Fought till the end till you had some breath

Never give up was your motto in life

And you lived it up till your final strife

You were the stuff that the legends are made

Saga of courage and valour displayed

Clicking of toast and chorus of cheers

No time for sorrow no time for tears

You cocked a snook when asked to jump

Got the jet back and raised your thumb

Humble in deeds and generous in smile

Lived your life without guilt or guile

You have flown off now into bluer skies

Leaving behind some moist eyes

But fly on son with your swagger and sway

For fighters don’t die they just fade away

You are up there with that glint and grin

Measuring the skies, yet some battles to win

Don’t worry for us we are fine and strong

You have taught us well how life goes on.


God Bless
