“THE GRAND MAA & LITTLE CHILD"___(Child in his/her old age)


O,

THE OLD LADY OF MY CHILDHOOD,

THE GRAND MAA, MY THRONE,

WHERE ARE YOU?

THE BABY OF THAT TIME NOT YET GROWN.


YOUR LOVE 

STILL AN INFANT-

PEEP IN MY HEART,

FIND SAME DECENT.


ALWAYS SMILING FACE,

WITH GRACEFUL EYES,

O,

SOFT SPOKEN,

JASMINE IN SCORCHING HEAT OF MY LIFE,


WHERE ARE YOU?


O, MY LOVE

ENGINE OF MY THOUGHT,

YOU WERE WITH ME

WHEN I NEEDED YOU LOT


MAA, IN GONE DAYS

BRIGHT SPOTS YOU

ON DARK BLACK WAYS.

UNFOLD LAYERS

LAYERS OF TIME,

FIND DEEP OCEAN

YOURS AND MINE.


DONT YOU REMEMBER

WORLD OF MY DREAM,

SCATTERED-

YOU APPEARED THERE 

RESCUED ITS SHEEN.


O, 

OLD LADY,

I AM ALL ALONE,

ADORE ME AGAIN,

O MY RHYME, O MY TONE.


WHERE ARE YOU

MY FIRST LAST PASSION 

I AM IN GAME

WITH SORROW AND EXPRESSION,

ARE YOU THERE

TAKING MY CARE,


IS IT TO YOU KNOWN

I AM ALL ALONE,

O, OLD LADY

I STILL NOT GROWN.


NEED YOUR SHELTER 

HAND IN HAND,

YOU ARE MY GUIDE 

YOU ARE MY FRIEND.
