my dear friend,
please donít lose heart
for yours is a Motherís
and I know you grieve
for grieve a Mother must
when her son bids farewell
and goes to some lands far away
far far away

but my friend,
I know for sure that your love
for your son wonít fade away
canít ever fade away
since fading is only
for light and shadows
and your heart shines
even when you tread in
murky shadows
for yours is a Motherís
and I know you grieve

hope there is a way
that I could help
in relieving grief
and helping tears flow
for once as smoothly as they must
so what are then left
are forever memories

the only way I can think of is
saving a few thoughts
in certain boxes
that remain like photographs
framed in memory cells
and hope these times pass on
as quick as they could

Take CareÖ

just wrote this for a friend who lost her son in a tragic road accident...

What a touching and beautiful way to offer comfort to your friend. I enjoyed this a lot and I hope that your friend drew strength from this piece and from your love and friendship.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

As time goes by, Sudhir,
this poem will grow even more precious
that you took a moment
to commemorate a life
everlasting...

Bless you.

Poetry is a kind and thoughtful way to ease the heart.  You wrote well, Sudhir, and I commend you on this piece of art, as well as your choice of expression.  Well done, my friend...

When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
