Miss Me – And Let Me Go!

January 15, 2011

Now that I’ve come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

Remember the fun and the laughs we had

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little – but not too long

And not with your head bowed low

Remember the love we all still share

Miss me – And let me go!

This is a journey we all will take

Each of us takes it alone

It is all part of the good Lord’s plan

A step on the road to home

When you feel lonely or sick at heart

Seek out the friends we know;

Ease your sorrow by doing good deeds

Miss me – And let me go!

Between Nothingness and Eternity

July 6, 2008

Between

Nothingness

and

Eternity

Barren of events,
Rich in pretensions
My earthly life.

Obscurity
My real name.

Wholly unto myself
I exist.

I wrap no soul
In my embrace.

No mentor worthy
Of my calibre
Have I.

I am all alone
Between failure
And frustration.

I am the red thread
Between
Nothingness
And Eternity.

 

 

Excerpt from “My Flute” by Sri Chinmoy 


Eulogy

January 28, 2008

The essence of God’s forgiveness lies in His word and in His mystery.

 Because although God sends us the message, it is our task to decipher it.

 Because when we open our arms, the earth takes in only a hollow and senseless shell.

 Far away now is the soul in its eternal glory.

 Because it is in pain that we find the meaning of life and the state of grace that we lose when we are born.

 Because God in His infinite wisdom puts the solution in our hands.

 And because it is only in His physical presence that the place He occupies in our souls is reaffirmed.

From “Pan’s Labyrinth”
