And firm footed,
Praying to the Lord of all regularly,
For guidance, for right direction accordingly,
With a thousand and one thanks repeatedly,
For all her benedictions,
All, from her earliest recollections,
Of her dear mum’s love
Her unconditional love,
Her reason for living,
Her reason for her confident being,
Her reason for fervent faith in the Supreme Being.
Ellana – 2
Her stoicism, her integrity came
Through motherly inculcation,
Of right values, specially integrity,
Shirking laziness and instead inviting assiduity,
In every act moderation,
Curbing hankerings leading to destruction,
Learning to be content,
Giving love, support, and encouragement.
And a thousand other motherly inculcation,
Ellana treasured with great appreciation.
Ellana – 3
Virtue is her inner trait
Wisdom illumines her gait,
Pleasure always at hand,
Pain she bears with a stoic stand.
Her reason brings light
Contentment is what makes her heart bright
Peace replaces in her bosom all scepticism,
Hope shedding rays of optimism,
Her life, though at times burdensome,
resilience, made less wearisome.
