Few lines in your name…
You conquer the barriers of both worlds
and wing into my dreams now and again
drawn by the yearning of my soul, as ever.
Why then did we suddenly cease
to count you amongst us!
Your loving memories are eternal
fragrant blooms of my mindscape.
They smile, mirror your grace and beauty.
The gates open to your jasmine smiles,
the silent rhythm of your unhurried gait,
the prudence of your rare words.
What a festive spread you left behind!
Yet without you I see only the moors.
You are my soft-spoken angel
now and forever.
How you bring the moon’s calm,
the serenity to troubled waters!
I wander in pursuit of that magic.
Agony haunts my tired feet
how do I live bereft of you!
You have sown life’s lessons
all along the paths you walked.
I, a bird of those trees
look to the sky in an unending wait
that you come one last time.
One last soul talk and I will bid you farewell
One last time I shall bow to your feet
and I will bid you farewell.
May your sweet memories sail us through
may your life be our guiding light!
Time stands still in your absence
it would be my Spring if life stirs again.
I will know then that you are back
I will know you are somewhere close
standing by my side and smiling at me.
I have set out on a journey of ups and downs
of twists and turns hidden in haze.
Bless me to be fearless, bless me with strength.
To the only Goddess I know
I offer my infinite salutations and pray,
may they be forever,
your Kshama (forgiveness),
and Daya (kindness).
To all those who lost their loved ones, to all those who are learning to live again!
Hold on to hope with a prayer on your lips.
May health and happiness find you again!
