Hand of God!

A magical feeling it is,
As I clasp your warm hands
It's a touch that offers solace,
A touch of grace that has always put my wandering conscience in place.
This is the time I truly believe in the Almighty Lord
For I am holding the Hand of God!
A belief I would discard rather
As thou are the carrier of Life
O Divine Mother!
A cherished dream that occurred night and day
For which you waited patiently,
To be realized someday!
While you laboured in turmoil and yet remained remarkably unperturbed
It takes a mother to trade pleasure for pain,
For that pain engenders a delightful gain!
As you taught me to walk,
Chiding me every time I refused to get up,
And lovingly coaxing me saying that walking was as easy as holding a chalk!
Something that you did with aplomb yourself
Your heart has always been precious
Impregnated with the seed of copious kindness.
A glorious legacy, which has always been passed down the family tree
You knew I would never go astray,
For this cherished tome always showed me the right way!
I owe everything to you
For without you
This wonderful life wouldn't have been due!
Allow me to pay obeisance to you from my death seat
And offer the fragrant flowers from the Xanadu garden
At your holy lotus feet!
With the knowledge that my life will no longer be mine
I can see the trauma that you feel,
And shall only helplessly hope that Time would help you heal!
But that doesn't deter me from departing with glee
For my head is perched on the soothing cushion offered by your lap
And it won't be long before I take a painless, perpetual nap!
But mother, Thou shall not cry!
You shall never walk alone,
For my memories will always permeate your senses even if the body is gone!
And heart is where you live
You are, and will be special, like no other
For you are my Dear Mother!
