Present too much to bear Future not in vision Past is my only resort Where lies the beauty of your touch My life and love with all its colours
My mother! come near Take me in your lap Touch me, touch my body and mind Tell me a story, I will be in your land of wonder Don't leave me alone, be with me I want to bathe in your love once more
I was told When I was a kid of some months and years In one side was Yama, Lord of death
My mother! come near
On the other side you my loving mother The tug of war was for years You made your days and nights speak Without caring for your bare needs The Lord of death had to run away And your unmatched love and commitment Brought me safe from the jaws of death.
You were on medicine and surgery With an ailing heart and dwindling brain You had been fighting against multiple ailment For twenty seven years You fought like a lioness agaist the tigress With equal ease and smile on lips In your last battle For the first time I was not with you Is it the reason my maa For which you had given up And the Lord of death got the better of you?
