There was someone who used to sing lullabies for me,
There was someone who used to narrate stories and fables to me,
There was someone who used to make me laugh,
With his endearment and caress he made me learn to live life.
There was someone who used to tell me that you may face many obstacles and hardships in life but never ever get afraid,
Whatever comes your way face it with courage,
But remember never hurt anyone with your deeds,
Remember you do not make anyone cry because of you.
You are my pride, fight with difficulties, move ahead, do/achieve something in life,
Achieve success, reach high levels, become an honorable person but never lose or forget your identity,
Whatever happens in life never cry,
I will always be there with you,
May I not be there in this world, but I’ll always be there as your right hand.
Today, he may not be there with me in this world,
But his talks, his teachings, his memories are there with me every moment.
Today also when I picked up my foot to walk, I thought someone walked with me,
Someone with a silent smile kept a hand with love on my head,
Someone quietly whispered in my ear “Be happy”,
I quickly turned to see if there was someone behind but found on one,
I screamed “Papaji (grandfather) where are you?”,
But heard no voice, there was no one.
Immediately my heart pumped and I heard a voice saying “ Appy (my nick name which he used to call me with love), I am here inside you, within you, wherever you go, I’ll be there with you.”
