Farewell - Poem by AJAYA BOHIDAR

You are waiting
She will not keep You
Long in waiting

Time has come
To make her depart
Body is not for keeping
Show her the path

A peaceful and a happy end
To the journey of life
Not inflicting any pain
On any human being

She lay surrounded
By her own people
Grateful neighbours
Relatives and faithful

She focused her look
At each and every face
Brought ecstasy to all
With her showering caresses

Youngest feature of her
Expressed the language of heart
Before she lowered the eyes

Please stop beating
She prayed
Make me free from being

We gazed
In silence
Shaken by shock
And sadness

Remained her eyes
Her body
Moved to stillness

Our cry
She paid no attention
The depth of our sorrow
She could not fathom

She departed
Her God by her side
The way she wanted
To bid farewell to life
