Mournful Moment - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Mournful moment does come in a family suddenly,
Mountainous hearts fill with grief very burdenly.
Mind, what does it means and when does it come?
Many relatives cry and many sit hopelessly in mum.

Minister or Mulish, deity or devotee or priest,
Monk or mother all mingle in earth with Christ.
Motionless will be the body after death is sure,
Mummy isn’t too eternal though it is made pure.

Moonless are the lifves of kinsmen in relative’s death,
Mournful movement covers lifves-sky in cloudy breath.
Modi operandi or resolves go with soul after death,
Modus Vivendi begins again in next life and health.

Mournful moment will be treated always as momentary,
Meditation time will be powerful one shouldn’t worry.
Monastically we have to maintain our own life style,
Money–spinner can’t attack our mind nor can lull bile.

Mischievous person should be avoided to maintain peace,
Milk run should be done in righteousness no one has to hiss.
Mother is great, father is great, and greatest is God,
Mannerly we should behave them and should nod.

    Life may suddenly be shadowed by dark clouds! Usually the unexpected death of a loved one fills us with inconsolable sorrow! But in course of time we get the grace to sail over it! We have to somehow accept the inevitability of death! A thoughtful write! (Report) Reply

    Truly, mournful moments come suddenly and death is inevitable,
    and God is the greatest, who tests us in the mournful moments.
