Greater Kailash, New Delhi, Early 1070s

for my mother (1934 – 2008)


she left me, with the thoughts of her embrace to warm me, in frigid mornings of tomorrows yet to come.


she left me, with words of tender truths to shroud me, in the coming evenings of stabbing sleet.


she left me, yet she stays within me, in my waking dreams, my restful thoughts.


she stays forever within me,


of me she shall remain an abiding part,


of the love.

the pain.

the tears.


so that we shall never be truly apart …
