Ethereal dust sprinkled on thy eyes

The reason why it shine, twinkles so bright

Thy hands, soft and smooth, won’t give a fight

Longed to touch it, if time permits, or dies.

Is the night sky comparable to your gaze?

Never, not an inch, for in thy sight I see

My image, so feeble, ugly: wants to flee

What was left in me? Awe and amaze.

Lightning speed how time fleets

Chasing physical enchantment

What was left on her youthful gleam?

Wrinkled, dried face, which I lament.

In stillness of the night, kindness and beauty I crave

Grandmother, I missed you. Soon I’ll visit your grave.
