She is serene. Samsara has no grip on her soul. She lived a life of transcendence. The hand of Cycles unclenched itself in the presence of her holiness. Bowed at her altar, Made prayers to her name. She laid a hand upon the youthfulness of my cheek, Wiped the tears from my eyes, Illuminated the swallowing darkness And took with her my grief. “Let your heart swell in joy, My little one, Pray to me with wholeness in your heart, for I have never known breath so deep, or peace so unwavering.” The waves no longer swell and break and crash. The waters she lays upon are like glass. Vritti cita niroda (the cessation of waves in the mind space). I am still here, And her love coats me as warm as a summer breeze. I am safe here, Where I can look into her emerald eyes once more And just be.
