Missing You, O Man of Peace

You gave us, and the world

everywhere, forever,

what it craves most to exist,

survive and grow –

the golden message and the illuminated path

of peace.

O Sabarmati Saint of peace,

Man of truth and non-violence,

with gratitude most humble,

do we bow to thee, in homage

this day, when you were born,

the day that finally comes

to be hailed worldwide,

by the United Nations even, as

The International Day of Peace!

No. please, we have not forgotten,

Nor would we

wish to lose you, o great soul,

how can your immortal tale

of freedom trail ever fade?

Year after year, we’ve missed you,

and always,

shall follow you,

bearing the glorious torch you left behind, thoughtfully

for our darkest hour,

to show the way,

through our quest

for peace,

through truth,

non-violently!

Be the change you wish to see in this world.

Be the change you wish to see in this world.
