Mother Teresa-a poem

Mother Teresa, the one good soul

 Served thousands and inspired millions

 The one who lived to love

 As love it self loved her

 With her gentle way of life

 She waged suffering as her pride

 In this materialistic world

 She loved nothing but mankind

 In a world of fragile fancy

 This service symbol stood apart

 She taught love, breathed love

 And carried love to the poor and sick

 When Gold attracted the rich

 Her smile attracted the world, as she was wearing

 When all searched the meaning of life

 This ‘Mother' created the meaning for life

 As the world neglected the poor and needy

 Her love and service encircled them

 When love to mankind tend to be a myth

 Her light of love removed the darkness

 Though born in a foreign land

 To work for the poor in India was her mission

 When all the learned searching for peace

 She showed peace through her gentle love

 Nobel Prize was awarded to this symbol of peace

 So what, the Nobel Prize was popular overnight

 When the weapon culture was prevalent

 Love was her only weapon

 Her love killed the seed of violence

 Thereby showed the Glory of Lord

 When people loved to live

 This “Mother” lived to love

 When she died, the world cried

 The world cried as the peace died

 The hope for the poor

 The apostle of peace

 The symbol of love

 And all the above died

 If resurrection is made possible by the Almighty

 Will it not be a help to her ‘Children'?

 All living thing will die and decay

 Her message of ‘love to mankind' will never decay
