Rekha Mandagere Poems
Freshness of love made me lively
To give up the life of solitude boldly
Year after year we loved happily
Hand in hand ever walked closely
Shockingly arose a whirlpool of strangers
Who wished to measure the worth of lovers.
I spiritedly climbed the hill in a second
And swam with the tides to far beyond
They uttered in chorus Great! Great!
But the final test to win was already set
Plucking away my root was only their trial
Implanting New Belief was their word final
Hearing that terrific crime I was taken aback
Inner voice cautioned me never ...
Take me away from the world of ignorance,
Lead me to the path of essence.
Drive away all my past memories
Fill my heart with your everlasting glories.
Moon is the symbol of purity
Make my soul shine with your clarity
Wash away the sins if you have seen any.
I hope, I haven't done many.
