Who left for the camp,
A month after holidays,
Word coming of war in siachen

Indeed, a mother's sacrifice can be likened to a soldier's too. Sad though because she was deprived and cheated and preyed upon by selfish people.
I gave this a 10 because of the cruelty suffered by women in certain parts of this world. It makes me ill, but I need not be better off than they. What right have I to this Heaven while my sisters dwell in Hell. GW62

How pitiful is the plight of the soldier's wife in your poem. Yet, her life reflects the lives of several like her.
