Wow...Nigerian man writes touching tribute to his soldier friends...grab your handkerchiefs people!

Who's in the mood for a little teary moment...read this poem written in honour of soldiers who sometimes lose their lives in battles. The poem highlights the plight of soldiers who battle day and night to keep people safe.

"We both left home at 18. You cleared JAMB I got recommended. 
You got UNILAG, I got NDA. You pursued your degree, I had the toughest training. Your day started at 7 and ended at 5, Mine started at 4 till 9 and Some nights also included. 
You had your convocation ceremony, I had my POP. Best company took you and Best package was awarded, I was ordered to join my platoon With 2 stars piped on my shoulders. 
You got a job, I got a way of life. Every eve you got to see your family, I just wished i got to see my parents soon. You celebrated festivals with lights and music, I celebrated with my comrade in bunkers. 
We both married, Your wife got to see you everyday, My wife just wished i was alive. You were sent to business trips, I was sent on line of control. We both returned, Both wives couldn't control their tears, but You wiped her but, I couldn't. 
You hugged her but, I couldn't. Because I was lying in the coffin, With medals on my chest and, Coffin wrapped with tricolour. My way of life ended, Yours continued. We both left home at 18. đź‘®

I dedicate this to every soldier and uniform person out there, we don't understand what you do and the sacrifices you make, but know that we are eternally grateful! . . Please share let them know we care!!!!We're proud of u guys!!! Thankful Shady Michael Bidemi Bidex Ishiaku Kazprinz Kazeem And all my soldier friends."
