She was a civilian until she became a military wife,
Marching by his side to be
A true companion throughout life.
Having stayed and educated in a small town ,
she now moved to make the whole country her own .
Adapting and accepting any place to which he was sent ,
she became happy even though it meant to pitch their own tent.
Nervous she was when she attended her first dinner night ,
Meeting all the graceful fauji wives as they shared their insight.
Packing and unpacking saw the test of her patience,
Gathering wonderful memories as they moved to a new station .
Ladies meet and welfare became the order of the day ,
soon standing by her counterparts made her happy and gay .
She stepped out of the house to make herself known ,
Little did she realise that time had come to leave for a place unknown.
Getting a posting to a field was a torture ,
since it meant staying away from her soldier.
Army revealed to her a strength uncommon ,
Taking pride in herself and becoming a confident woman.
