The Goodness - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

I am the soul tries to rest in peace,
Of the man lying in the funeral pyre
That I have traveled a journey of life
seeing happiness, troubles, and sorrows,
His relatives, near and dear ones
along with the friends and well wishers
stands in the ground here and there
different opinions on the man who passed
someone remembers his good deeds of lifetime
Another narrating the misdeeds he committed
Most of them agrees the loss as sorrowful
To the society and village he resided
But my memory is the good tasks of him
That saved the life of a poor cow
Trapped inside of an abandoned well
crying for help from the bottom
Hearing the sorrowful cry of the animal
This gentleman ran towards the well
seeing the plight and helplessness
He ran to the village to coordinate a team
His timely action rescued the poor animal
with a spirit and compassion and love
Now I hear the crying sounds of that animal
May be on the grief of the death of its saviour
I experience animals are so thankful
whom they got protection and love
whom from they got food and drink
I understand only the good deeds will last
for the soul that helps to rest in peace./
No fame, wealth, and posh life,
come for the rescue of the human being
only the positiveness and charity will survive
And makes the human being immortal after death.
