M.D Dinesh Nair (Thrissur/Vijayawada)
TELL ME WHY..
Tell me why your words continue to be a solace to me
When I drown in the trumpets of times cruel?
Tell me why your presence is conspicuous to me while your being away
When I am lost in the midst of men and women in silks?
Tell me why your graceful faces and looks come in my dreams
When you have often veiled your eyes and mouths?
Tell me why your care and love descend on me incessantly
When a strange habitat emerges around me now?
My granny said, 'When everybody leaves you, God will be with you, my kid'
And she was quoting the age-old concept perhaps like all.
I honour the frail mouth`s chanting lie bur have to say,
'When the old faiths get buried we feel the real human love'.
