“I am in preparation, my Daughter,

I am preparing a pen to scribe your dreams.

I have walked in Your Light;

Bathe in your sorrows, and channelled your aspirations.

My sweet Love dances, with the petals in your Heart.

I cascade your fragrances into the universal beauty of the Earth,

And you rise as a glimmer, in the Ocean of the Unknown.”

“You have slept with My memories,

Danced with my words;

Exalted Me to the pinnacle of beauty!

I have shared your joys and your sorrows,

Wept with you’ and waltz into the setting sun!

I emptied Myself, so that you could be full;

Flew like a butterfly, to drop my elegance into your Spirit.”

“Yes, my Beloved, I am never alone.

You sail with me on stormy seas;

Sustain me with fortitude and nourish my longing.

You gave light to my Path, became a beacon in my horizons,

And encouraged me in my solitude.

I felt Your love in my Essence,

Your smile in my core, and I danced in Your sunbeams.”

“We need each other.” Said my Beloved sweetly.

Through you I unveil my plans;

Whisper to the daffodils, share selflessly my innate grandeur.”

“Yes! Sweet Majesty. You fanned me with lustre;

Gave sweetness to my Soul;

Burned as a furnace in my longing.”

The Beloved smiled and entered in my Soul,

Playing Her celestial music,

On the wings of a keyboard that resonated

With the very Essence of Her Breath: LOVE.

I thus dined, at the enchanting banquet of Her Majesty.

      Beauty surrounds us, and all we need to do is simply, look.

      I thank you so much for your very soulful sentiment. God bless your affectionate heart.


      Yes, children are wonderful and charming. They teach us a lot as well, in their own innocent way. Mothers are excellent, too. I have written much for them. In Love and Light.

      Yes, my Sweet, Dee. To put it in a more profound way, Sri Chinmoy used to say that ultimately, The Supreme is our only Friend. So happy that you recognise His Omnipresence. In Love and Light.

      Beautiful! Even when our children have grandchildren of their own, we still remember them as so lovely as little children and love them twice over - for what they once were and what they are now.

      Simply beautiful Manatita. What parent can't relate to the love deep in the soul that this poem brings? The encouragement and sweetness our children bring us never dies.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      It helps to realize that we are never alone and that we are always loved. This is among my favorites of your tributes. Thanks for sharing such excellence.

      Thanks Harish,

      Good to hear you, 2015. Yes, Kabir is a giant among men indeed! Thanks for your contribution, Bro.

      Yes, Bill, a real struggle.

      Will we try our best here on Hub Pages, I do recognise that it is struggle for some of us also. Still, we rise...

      Thanks Bro.

      Ah Jamie,

      Had to rush this morning and now I'm still tired, because I went to Poetry Cafe. 00:34 and lots of work today. Tried to upload my video for you. Didn't work. Will explore Thursday as Wednesday is a significant group prayer evening, and it's also my turn to provide the refreshments.

      Yes, Bro. I truly appreciate your love for your children. I was at that stage once. My son was 34 on Jan 6th and is a talented and very spiritual child. I will be 63 in three weeks.

      So happy that my poems give you joy. This one I did last night at Poetry Cafe with one other. Very well received. No videos, though. So sorry. It will happen sometime, I'm sure. I will return in a few hours to make sure that I'm happy with the input. Lots of love and gratitude.- Manatita

      Yes! I will read this to my children and share your poetry. What a gift you have given them and what a smile you have brought to my face this morning. You were able to express the joy I feel when I wake up to their yawning sleepy faces every morning. Thank you so much manatita44 and may your day be full of peace and love. Jamie

      This was the perfect way to begin my day. Love is the universal language, my friend. Now if we could just teach all inhabitants to speak it.

      blessings always

      Dear brother, this is a lovely dedication to Jamie's lovely kids ! The beauty of this poem is such that the more one reads it, the much joy s/he gains. Both versions of love, one for the daughter and second for the beloved are elegant and sublime ! My favorite is Kabir, a great saint , who understood and drank the real nectar ! A fantastic creation. Voted up and shared.
