Here’s to a great man!

June, 8, 2007

Great men lived in this earth,
I know of one,
He lived by his ways –
A simple high thinking life

Dedicating his life to service
To the best of best in all of us
He lived and breathed his life
The supreme in his mind

He stood and did not budge
Principles were his legs
He said what had to be said
To cover was not his way

His faith was supreme
So were his acts
An example of self control
For me and many more

Patience even in pain,
Perseverance at all times,
His mind dedicated to his acts,
Not caring for his body

His life was a life of light
His life was a blessing
Blessed I am for all time to come
To have been born as his Son

He lives in many hearts
As the heart of the Supreme Truth
And shines in a place
Of permanent peace and bliss!

Note: This is a poem dedicated to my Father Sri Kidambi Ramaswamy Srinivasan, who left his mortal coils to reach the supreme place in October 2006.
