Poem: Bye Bye Dear Grief

Writer's Digest, April PAD challenge day 4 topic is departure. When I read this word, first feeling came in my mind was the grief I felt after the departure of my Sadgurudev H. H. Shri Narayankaka Maharaj. I thought not to write a sad topic. When I started writing, I am surprised to see my positive feelings...

your departure
made me an orphan
dear Sadgurudev!
I was depressed
lost my words
lost my feelings…
lost hope 
cried 
why I have this life, now!
felt aimless
and
today…...
writing this poem…
leaving that grief behind forever…
Sadguru never leaves the disciple..
you are always guiding me
you are always with me
you are everywhere
your immortal thoughts are always with me...
bye bye dear Grief...
we can't no longer be together...
now eternal has taken your place
in my heart...
realized the oneness
realized the advaita...
realized Gurutattva is everywhere...
bye bye dear Grief...
bye forever..
bye dear grief forever..


Gurudev left this world in 2012. I could neither forget the grief of his departure nor could express it properly.  I tried so many times to write something about it, but I couldn’t.  

Today, by writing this poem..I am just happily saying, bye grief…Good Bye. You do not need to be with me anymore. I am happy realizing the Nirakar- Sarvvyapi Swaroop of my Gurudev. 

Nirakar means having no shape. Sarvavyapi means Gurutattva is everywhere in every form, in air, sky, in humans, animals...everywhere.
