Hello, Mahatma, please accept our deepest love and respect,
Your absence is truly unbelievable and really heartfelt.
We, the Indians, keep a "Special Spot" just for you,
'Cause your lessons are immortal and draw global view.
You achieved your "Spot" through enormous tolls -
And they are still so vivid in everyone's souls.
Via untiring efforts, you achieved India's freedom and fame,
Nation was speechless and named you the "Father" of the game.
Your "moves" brought the everlasting glories on behalf of us,
So the world bows down to respect your deed without any fuss.
Your innocent smiles stirred up the hearts of all,
And we will remember you always without your call!
Your soft unspoken tender love and glittering eye -
Shine at our "own" motherland and never say good-bye.
Your courage was awesome, in the tales it can be found -
And supports are still pouring in to make us spellbound!
You never gave up your efforts and had unlimited patience,
'Cause Lord gave you His strength to exert your persistence!
You won the civil war for us from the mighty British rule -
And freed our India through non-violence, your "magic" tool!
>From us, today, you are wandering freely far far away -
And offering us lessons while keeping your mind at bay.
Your strength and the struggle for truth are felt everywhere -
Around the globe, in ocean, in soil and in open atmosphere!
Be assured that your memories will be with us at all the time,
And direct us in the darkness and even when the winds chime!
Today, we float our hearts immersed in dew moistened tear -
To display our close affections for you without any fear.
We will follow your glorious paths with blind folded eye,
Without any set back or hesitation and uncompromised vie.
Remember, our hearts now cry alone in daylight and darkness,
But vividly remember your tender love with natural harness!
The whole world has neatly placed your name in concrete stone,
And we are so blessed with each and every touch of your bone!
Before conclusion, we love to say this,
Although it's very very true, as it is -
You shine like a viable "Rising Sun" in the far East,
So bright, so gentle, and so polite to say the least!
The aspects of your glorious life are simple and straight,
And remind us old reminiscence even after the "sunset"!!!
