MY LIFE’S LIGHT WAS SHE.
My “Life’s Light Left” this day three years ago exact
Keeping me desolate among a crowd of greats-left
To fend for myself despite kith and kin with me
That is HIS will- Omniscient God- who loves me!
Together we were for more than four and a half decades
In thick and thin, in joy and sorrow near with her,
And away- far far away- leaving her to take care of children
No murmurs, no expression of regret- all Mother’s grace!
The cruel hands of destiny and death carried away
My beloved better half-years three are gone
Gone with the times remaining every minute
In my thoughts with misery unbearable-absolute!
Seen off at Kadapa railway station on our way to Kolkatta to receive Micheal Madhsudhan Academy Award twenty years ago.
Friend in need is a friend indeed – a saying goes
Your friends will see you in your prosperity
You will see your friend in your adversity
Understanding each other is indeed friendship
Friendship is not mere smile on face
Friendship is the smiling heart’s embrace!
Friendship hastens help in mishaps
Like hands picking up the dress that slips!
Not to laugh is friendship made
But to hit when faults exceed!
International Friendship Day is sixth August
Let us promote in a manner quite august!
To punish is human to forgive is Divine
To forget is human to forgive is Divine
To say yes to punishment is human unfair
To say no to punishment is Divine –quite fair!
Forgiveness is giving up resentment and anger
Forgiving is granting free pardon to the wrong doer!
August sixth –first Sunday of each august August
International Forgiveness day is robust!
“Love all and serve all” paves path for forgiveness pure
“Help ever, hurt never” spreads red carpet quite sure
Let us take to the path Divine, forget and forgive
Lord Almighty in all HIS compassion, takes to Heaven!
In the noble creation of the great God Almighty
All living beings be tied to the bond of love tightly
To promote, nurture and nourish sweet peace and harmony
Among young and old, read and unread, poor and rich surely!
“Love all serve all”, “help ever hurt never’ policy sure
The foundation of making us “SLAVE OF LOVE” ever pure
That indeed is the purpose of His creation – wonder
Each for all and all for each cemented by love-ponder!
Love is truth and truth is love, truth is God and God is truth
Love therefore is God and God is Love an eternal truth
To be a SLAVE of LOVE is to be the SLAVE of GOD sure
I am proud to be a SLAVE OF LOVE quite pleasant and pure!
This is the poetic tributes of Sow. Nivetha , awaiting XII results, to
her beloved MOTHER on this year’s MOTHERS DAY.
Oh, my sweetest Love, my beloved mother
Who else can be sweeter than you, a feather?
But for you, I could not be here on this world
I can make this known to the world very bold.
Oh, my sweetest love, my beloved mother
Who can travel with you for long with flower?
I can help you till I am with you joyously
You are my great wealth serving me happily!
Oh, my sweetest love, my beloved mother,
Who can solve all my problems nice and smoother?
Sure I am not here to hurt you any more
I give all my love within and out walls four!
