Departed soul

Departed soul


Sweet angel Anushka, when God held your hand,

He knew that you are not of this world,

That you wear this earth suit

But underneath is your armor,

From the crown of your head

To the soles of your feet.

The oil of love.


In this psychedelic world where

The gossip is always on the loose,

Life was not always for you a bumpy ride

Or pick-your-own-strawberries adventure.

It was a sentence and your words

Were beautifully chosen, undoubtedly.


Pretty woman, so beautiful in looks,

Wearing your ring studded with rubies,

You considered the world so differently,

Where a door is not an entrance

Or an exit, it’s a decision,

Windows help you make that decision.


You always had a moral victory in your thoughts.

You saw not through the facade of pretense,

Nor were your perceived differences impure.

Like rose petals falling on virgin snow,

Unnoticed, you always pulled people,

To the other side, always pushing a little.


Anushka, now that you are in the land of love,

Celebrating the harvest of your karma,

Lighting the fire of compassion,

Having put away the umbrella,

We will soon join you in the dance

Under the winking stars.
