SAVIORS OF OUR NATION – A Poem Written by Shiva Kumari Bista

What must one prove in love for his country?
For the peoples and to the world
To show his commitment and love to his nation.
Trust me, there are no bounds that I would say something about our His Majesty
Who would say that’s a king, king of Bhutan,
Who owes a golden throne and a palace.
And found resting under a wooden hut
Sitting on a wooden bench today.
He is none, none other than a king of Bhutan,
Sitting with pride, on a wooden bench.
He is real, a real unique you, your majesty,
His uniqueness stood out, others uniqueness,
Spreading sweet fragrance within.
He is a tree with deep roots, feeding us with all his fruits.
Laugh and we laugh with you, weep and you must be weeping alone.
As this pandemic hit our beautiful Nation.
Sacrifices you are making today, are, helping many play their parts too.
Sacrifices you are making today, are changing the world’s history.
The sacrifices you are making today are lighting our lives up.
Sacrifices you are making today, are filling our dry plates.
The sacrifices you are making today will be treasured forever and ever.
You are in the hearts of every people your majesty.
And part of us that screams are put today for you,
As we find you sacrificing lots of our happiness and safety.
You are best to be called the father of our nation with one vision.
You always keep note, for a life of your peoples, without you in it,
That’s a true death we all may do fear.
So, You travel tirelessly around in the sun and rain.
As you love your people, more than yourself.
What can we wish more, for we have a king like you,
who loves, cares, and guides us throughout.
In life, being a citizen of this great nation,
If ever, a shot ever fires and I am targetted.
And bullet severs a heart of me, I would just say a word
“I am proud, I was born in this great nation “
And shall leave with pride and a smile on my face.
As this is nothing compared to the sacrifices done by you, your majesty.
Sacrifices you are making today will be remembered in decades to come.
And will stay in the hearts of many, never to fade away.
Sacrifices done by you will be passed throughout the world.
To many kings, and to other parts of countries,
For the decades to remember this beautiful country with great king and its sacrifices.

🙏Long live our king!🙏🙏🙏
