I have roamed and wandered endlessly
For life times I have patiently waited
And now finally!
I now get a glimpse of your mesmeric eyes!
Petals of love now blossom in my heart
The nectar of wisdom flows
The breeze of happiness gently blows
As your plaited hair sways as you walk away
Tell my dear
Will you look this away again?
White and blue
An ever charming smile
By the mask of death
Your sunken eyes
Once filled with life and love
Now opalescent and grey
Deep dark and silent!
You lived to help!
And helped to live!
A mother you were to all!
Yet, dear sister!
When a thousand ordinary lives still need you here
Why did our Lord take you so soon?

The door of the elevator closes shut
The darkness of the soul and the dingy cabin
As the floors pass by!
One by one! One by one!
Breathing the musty encroaching air
A heavy thought descends upon me
Descends upon me and chokes!
A gruff voice within, asks me in my ear?
Tell me you fool!
Why are you still you alive?

Lazing clouds embrace the hills
The morning drizzle!
The cool monsoon breeze!
Left over from the nights down pour
Full up puddles!
Now blue with the clearing sky
Trees and lawns; fields and the hills
Green is the colour!
Green is the colour of life!
Oh! How blissful is this beauty of life!
