This is my first letter to you
Ma! How are you in your new residence?
Where I find an unseen fence
Preventing me to make an entrance
Or rather I know not about its existence
All I know to be true
Is that you have crossed the bar?
Leaving behind me so far
That I seek for you in vein
Only perceive you understand ‘am in pain.
Life without you Ma, hope you understand
It is a walk in the deserts full of sand
Where blows the dust storm
No more I can feel your arm
That used to hold me tight
So I find comfort at night
Ma! Do you still care?
As now I am left all alone in our home called earth
Where you gave me birth
I have none to share
So I decided to post a letter
Although I know not your address
Yet can feel your grace
I feel the warmth of the smile in your face
At the time when life has become an unending war
Sooner you left me forever.
Now I fend my life all alone
I may bemoan
Or even frown, shout, scream or cry
My tears dry
But no more you come to wipe it from my face
I pass my days.
But Ma? Now you have joined Baba in your new dwelling place
I am happy to believe you have kept the worries at bays
Baba and you are happy in each of your presence
I am all right Ma sitting on the fence
Visualizing our good old days
The sun shoots out its rays
And even sets
I wish you my best
Ma, I now end this letter with love
Far in the Gir forest the lioness may play with its cub?
