A note from our heart

(This poem was read on the eve of the retirement of our staff Mrs. Bilasini Vijayan on 31st Aug 2009).   

Upon these dales

We were one feather,

On a long flight being together,

In search of grains of life.

 

Upon these branches

We were one long chirp,

One melodious song being a harp,

In search of fountains of life.

 

The streams yonder,

The fields ripe and evergreen,

Those teeming winds,

And those harvesting seasons -

 

These were our endless meads,

Our throbbing heart,

Our happy days

And treasured moments for future.

 

Now, after a long season,

You are leaving these beautiful dales.

In search of further sights

You are preparing for a long flight.

 

It will be a long miss,

The dales are fallen into silence.

Beyond yonder hills

It is all a vanishing trail.

 

Here, within a veil of mist,

Melodious days return to our thoughts.

Here, within our diminishing circle

Your association returns as an endless whisper.

 

Graceful was thy benevolence

Fruitful was thy whole endeavor.

Peaceful was thy very presence

Cheerful was our clan without peer.

 

And our clients are really blest,

Your services are really the best.

Our words are really honest,

Amongst us, you are a beacon of light.

 

As you leave these dales

Our hearts are deep and silent.

We, standing in a single file

Pray you a sojourn full of bliss.

A Word from the Writer
Mrs. Bilasini Vijayan is indeed a noble lady. When the qualities of a person touch our heart, poems are naturally born in this way.
