Take me home

March, 2000

Take me home..take me home, white bird in the sky...

To my loved ones so near to me yet far away;
To my dear ones whose thoughts fill my night and day.

Breath life to the images so clear in my memories,
Unveil and return to me my most precious treasuries.

Turn those tears that were shed during parting
Into pearls of joy that are ever lasting.

Crush my arms with the hugs of family and friends.
To the wrongs of leaving them, let me make amends.

Take me home..take me home, white bird in the sky...
Take me home today...

~ Madhukar Rajendra in Connecticut, USA.
