Sachin Sachin...

By fireiceandallthingsnice - May 27, 2017

Since the Sachin fever is soon going to engulf the entire nation through the movie Sachin: A billion dreams. I thought I might as well bask in its glory by posting a poem I wrote on Indian Cricket team's victory in the World Cup 2011.

Everyone cherished a dream,
To fight the odds and win,
the crown of being the king
in the kingdom of cricket.
For which even God couldn't resist,
to be a part of this game,
And so he was there in the form of Sachin.

They came, they played,and they conquered,
mammoth runs they chased,
and records they embellished,
In the history, their glory will be etched.
For the generations will have their memories sketched,
with the blood and soul of the players,
because of which the cup was fetched!

The Euphoria that was felt,
the anticipation that was built,
times the billion hearts skipped their beat,
the tears that fell, implied the nation knelt,
At the way, the team was so adept in lifting the world cup,
for which to them, we are at dept.
Nation could only be grateful, which is a feeling so heartfelt. πŸ˜‡

P.S: This one I had posted on my old blog. So, some of you might recollect reading it. For those who are reading it for the first time, I hope it reminds you a little bit of the emotions you felt the very day we won the world cup.πŸ™‚
