Md. Ohabul Islam Khandker
Before the birth of our nation
A man came with determination;
Nothing could stand in his way
Got everything under his sway.
A man stood with golden declaration,
Before the very birth of the nation.
Adorned with such a golden voice!
None were left with any other choice-
Did follow his call for the freedom,
Held their heads high in martyrdom;
Uprooted autocrats, uprooted poverty,
Securing the nation with sublime liberty.
He was a leader-the greatest of its kind,
Eager to stand, with all his mind,
In favour of the oppressed and poor;
Kept always open, his mind and door;
Had a simple life but thoughts high;
Moved by others’ suffering and sigh,
Undertook every possible measure
Just to provide them with pleasure.
In his death he ceased to be a living being,
But like a warm, delightful, eternal spring.
Uplifting our souls and our everything,
Ran through us and kept recurring.
Running through our veins in all fights,
Awakening us during days and nights,
His spirit enlightens all of us till today
Moulding our lives with a delicate inlay.
And, if we let the spirit make us sway,
Nothing can, or will stand in our way.
