15. Come Baba Come

Come, Come, Baba Come!

The gates of my heart

Are lying wide open

Waiting for you to enter its portals

The soul within is craving

Since ages past

For your benign presence

It seems, now ready

To receive you

And merge in you.

Come, Come, Baba Come!

My surrender to you

May not have been complete

Even if so,

Ignore it

For I am your child.

Come, Come, Baba Come!

You are the apostle of love and compassion

So the seers say

Then why not take pity on me

Lift me up

And make me become one with you

So that I too may exhuberate

A bit of your love and compassion

Enabling me to render

Seva to those fortunate ones

Who have placed

Complete faith in you

Come, Come, Baba Come!

I know full well

I am asking for the moon

Without deserving what I yearn for

But let the waters of your Mercy

Purify my soul

Make it capable of receiving

And distributing your grace.

With abounding munificence

On those who seek it from you

But get lost,

In the labyrinth of worldliness,

Come, Come, Baba Come!

16. Sai in Procession

Suddenly the, gonds started ringing

Full throated ‘Jay Jay Kars’ arose

The scramble to occupy positions of vanage started

Lo!

The saint of Shirdi-Sai

Emerges from the Dwarkamayee

Shama holding His right arm

Buty, His left,

Baba’s left hand holding His torn ‘Kafni’

Right hand His ‘Satka’

He stops while walking

Bare footed

But his face wears a divine glow

Eyes an intoxicated look

As if drums of wine have gone down his throat

Shyam Sunder at the back

Accompanies His Master

A celestial sight indeed!

The procession stops in front of mud-house gate.

Radha Krishna Mai emerges

Her hands holding the puja thali

With coconut, kumkum, Haldi, betelnuts and rice seeds

The ghee Deepak spreading a dim glow

She waves the thali in fornt of Sai

The face of the Master of Eternity glows further.

A voice roars suddenly

Where are you hiding Ma Luxmibai,

Come out

Your Sai is standing before your door

Disappoint Him not

Come out with your Thali

And waive it

The procession moves on and on.
