My Father

Truth was your way of Life.

Peace, Love and Unity,

Always close, to your heart.

Plain, clean simplicity

Your power and your armor

Gentleness of Ahimsa,

Your strength and your weapon

You won the war of hatred,

With, pure true affection!

And smiled away as clear

As a shiny simple crystal

I worship thee my father.

Noble Father of my Nation!

 I gain hope over despair

When I think of your words

My dear humble soul

That said,

Truth is the only truth.

I sense love for hatred

When I see thy elegant smile

I rejoice amid of sorrow,

In your picture on the wall.

 Gods do come down to earth,

And live amongst the mankind.

I have pride, in witnessing the fact

I see God in you my father!

 But, realizing the truth

Hands and heart that

Cared for me, are not around

Anymore…

Makes me cry, at times

I tremble, in a throbbing fear!
