To Mom with Love

Mom transitioned exactly 8 years ago, and soon after these words just flowed out of me. Writing is not really my cup of tea. What came out was from a deeper place of knowing. This morning when I read the article on non-duality by @Arthur Russel, I remembered this and am sharing it with you all.

To Mom with Love

The soul has merged with the whole
The dew drop
Has truly become oceanic

So what do we mourn ???
Death is not a dearth
Tis a celebration

Watching Mom transition
The most amazing experience
The merger
The tranquility
The serenity
After the pain n struggle

Is she out there somewhere
Who knows
Truly feeling her inside me
Beside me, a part of me

Feel blessed n honored
To witness this happening

Experiencing the oneness
Of Pain n Joy
Life n Death

Possessiveness giving way
To detachment
Form moving to formless
In its sheer beauty

The last one hour…
Her resistance
Giving way to acceptance

The doubts n fears
Of the dew drop
B’fore jumping into the ocean
Blood pressure going down
E’er so gradually
170 – 130 – 60 – 25 – – 0 – 0 – 0 . . .

Pain on the face
Giving way
To a beautiful smile
With eyes closed
As if seeing
A lovely dream

She said some months ago
I want to now go to daddy
She didn’t want
To run away or die
So clearly focused
On the destination

Am pleasantly surprised
At my acceptance
Well almost…
Lighting the pyre was painful
Acceptance vanished
Emotions came up strong

Death I didn’t know
This side of you
Nor this side of me

I love you
I welcome you
The way you took away
All the pain n suffering
N brought back the smile

Taking Mom on her journey

To her chosen destiny…
