The soul departed -
Leaving the people who adored
Left this soil, which mothered her
Leaving the sons, daughters,
Grandsons and grand daughters
Who always cared for her...
At the time of leaving this soil,
The soul encircled the loved ones,
Thought always for the best,
And being called to the hitherto
She embarked on the journey
With dignity and Pride.
Knowing fully well that
Her loved ones are in safe hands.
The little ones - not knowing
The happenings around
Cried a lot, not knowing that
The hitherto loved one is going away
To a place all of us have to rest at last.
The life starts with energy
The energy ends with life
But it moves beyond the body
To the perpetual eternity.
Let the soul rest in peace
As only fond memories are around her.
We pray together for you to stand tall
At the time of the biggest loss in your life;
Knowing fully well,
Only the body leaves, and the soul
Is within you,
As the creator cannot leave you alone.
