SALUTE TO A WARRIOR

(DEDICATED TO OUR FRIEND Frances Irene Tolfa)

 

RADHAKRISHNAN:-

Oh, look at her smile from ear to ear!!
The dreaded monster didn’t gave her any scare,
She is Frances, a courageous warrior,
Our role model, a three times cancer survivor.

Armed with prayers and God standing beside her,
She fought with the beast and emerged stronger,
With a zeal to live, she had that indomitable will power,
Under the attack of cancer she did not cower.

Lumpectomy and chemo caused her unbearable pain,
But they are needed to help her life to sustain,
Those treatments kept her nerves to strain,
She overcame all the begin the life again.

A strong believer of impact of positivity,
Possessed by fighter spirit to last till eternity,
Wow!! she is already back to be with winds and waves,
Our heroine, our role model, we proudly look at with awe.

She passed her baton of courage to all those fighters,
To have hope at heart in their battle against the biter,
She is on the brink of winning that hard fought battle,
We are happy to see her back in the saddle.

Hats off to Frances, our bold and beautiful soldier,
Despite her fight, she never lost her composure,
Persisted, resisted and yielded for none,
With God by her side, Frances had won.

 

NUTAN:-

She was a strength beyond a strength
A strength growing in its strength
A strength which never cowered
tied in its own strength
Tried
A death sentence
A challenge to its life

For she was not afraid to die
Her life her own to live and die
Never loosing herself in it
To fight it
Against it
In it to be that smile
of love
In eyes that cry
Love me life
Don’t deny
your love for me in you to breathe
For I am your breath that breathes
That last breath that never
leaves
In every breath to breath your love
Till the last moment of my life
To be your love
For you are that love
That I feel
in you to be my God
Believe
In you
Never bereave
For in you I grew
Now my fate
I leave
In your hands
to pray and receive
The love that you always
bestowed on me
Your faith in it
to be in me
You gave me birth
Now you take it away from me

If that’s what you think I deserve
in me
Then let me be
For I know you believe in you
My sorrow my pain
me in you
I surrender to you
Then take me with you
To be that
belief
That believes in you
For you know
what is best for me
In that belief to be in me
With you
