Bhaktimarga Swami: Leaving Us Today

Dear Vaisnav, you are leaving us today
To take part in a much greater play
Fleeing from this world, a mix of sweet and sour
To ascend to the realm of the Higher Power.

It’s hard for those who knew you well.
It’s not for us to say or for us to tell.
We can’t be greedy demanding your presence
We take from you and capture the essence.

Inspire you did and that we’ll remember
From the start of the year to the end of December
You were loyal, determined, fixed, and straight
And overall your devotion was great.

You have cut the bonds, to join the Onewith the flute,
The One who claims He’s the very root.
Let’s sing! Let’s dance! seeing you off
Let’s be elated which is never enough

Bhaktimarga Swami
(in dedication to my godsister Bhadra Priya)
