On Our Dad’s Death Anniversary - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

-->

Today, our dad beloved had passed away,
Two dozen years ago from earth this day
–A gifted man who etched in gold his stay,
For us to follow life-long and to pray!

In humble ways, he tried to live all life,
Invoking God in happiness and strife;
His tribulations hurt his heart like knife;
His love for neighbor was so great and rife!

His loving memory, we cannot forget;
To his great love and care, we stay in debt;
Another man like him, we have not met;
In heaven, he must be –we all can bet!

We long to see you daddy very soon;
Without you, there’s no beauty in the moon;
You left us like the rain in sun of noon –
A saintly man, our life’s ship-mast and boon!

May your soul rest in peace in Christ!
Dedicated by your ever loving children
