As she marches the unknown path ahead,
She leaves back , in our hearts, a longing thread.
For years, she stood like the Rock Of Gibraltar,
Always guiding and never letting us falter.
Braving the storms, standing tall in Sun and rain,
Never she displayed, ever a streak of pain.
Taking life head on, she was soldier brave,
Not even once, she sought a shelter or a cave.
Devotion and sacrifice stood by her side,
Under the umbrella of her love, we all sailed with stride.
A teacher, an aunt, a sister, a family head and so much more,
She is a gem of a person who’s compassionate to the core.
Now that she lays her armour to the ground,
I wish her a smooth journey outbound.
May she find everlasting peace and bliss,
With a heavy heart, I plant a final kiss!
I dedicate this poem to the Iron Pillar of my life, my aunt Shanta G Khare, fondly known as Didi. She was my teacher, my Guru, and the Headmistress of the school and Junior College where I was groomed. Learnt what is meant by the saying, “When life throws lemons at you, make a lemonade”, from her. “Impossible”, was the word that was not in her dictionary. Whatever little, that I can pen, is all courtesy her tutelage. Didi, I love you and you will always remain very special in my heart…
