We cannot say of heart,
But from lips for sure,
During your stay here on earth
We could never dare address you as-
Maryada Purushottam Ram
Though you possessed all the attributes of both
Whereas we had all the intent.
We knew, to you the very idea was loath.
Lest you should chastise
We refrained and thought it wise-
To keep concealed,
What we ought to have revealed.
When you are not physically around,
And only your ideas resound
Cannot we afford to be a little bold and ask-
How could you transform us-the sick and suffering lot-
Into men of steel,
Little water drops into oceans of unfathomable reach
Pebbles picked up from sandy beach into mighty mountain
Mere mortals into some one from divine domain,
Without the alchemy?
If you were not part of that supreme spark
That burns itself at both ends
Before it radiates the entire Universe
With its golden glow,
Infusing new life into sleeping graves
With His conch'spowerful blow.
Now, your silent smile
Can no longer beguile.
Deny, if you can,
Could this miracle be performed
And Ram'svow (Raghukul Reeti…)
We mean your well earned Devattava!!
Is not your sublime silence
An eloquent admission
To our obstinate submission!!!
