Eulogy to Our Mom
Adieu, my Sweetest, Dearest Mom,
Thou sparkling, cheerful, radiant One.
God's flower-heart-beauty-fragrance hand.
Your heart-filled zest for living, governed your impulses,
Ennobled your affections, and sweetened your life.
You were a Light amongst your Dearest ones,
Showering your joyful spirit, to all around.
Its brilliance still enfolds us,
Chasing away the shadows, and
Soaring with spontaneous love.
Soulful self-giving, and Motherly empathy,
You constantly embodied, exalting the Supreme.
With humour, courage, simplicity and strength.
A lamp upon a hill cannot be hidden.
It embellishes the darkness, and
Glorifies the Master's name.
Such was your wonderful and dynamic life.
Seven loving children, a life-long husband,
Sisters, friends; grandchildren, nay, will not forget,
Your ceaseless contribution to a self-giving life.
Farewell, Dearest Mom, farewell,
May your Soul smile lovingly, under the benediction
Of a most luminous dawn;
Birds sing sweetly in the celestial spheres,
And the trumpets of the heavenly realms,
Ring joyfully in your Being.
-Manatita, 11th August, 2011.
