The Seva of 2020
2020 started with the coronavirus furor
Instilling fear across the world,
We were filled with anxiety to the core,
And then came the lockdown only to add more.
My Master as usual had planned it all out for me,
As he came to my rescue, my anxiety fled.
He opened the doors of seva for me
How blessed am I when I have no reason to be.
It all started with helping the needy,
But even here I was selfish and greedy.
Front face I was doing the seva for the unfortunate,
But back of mind it was my Master I wanted to please.
It was the best experience of my life,
During a phase when I could have been crying.
In the name of seva, he was doing it all
And giving us the credit, we did not deserve at all.
Now I understood why he created this digital world –
To bless us with his darshan which we were craving,
One look at him, we were at ease and relieved
From the insecurity of when we would see him!
With his grace, food preparation and packing seva
Were smoothly and safely executed.
He bestowed upon us the energy to do it,
Which normally was impossible!
We all became like sheep
And he the shepherd guided us all the way through.
The days spent here will always be cherished;
These overwhelming memories will remain embedded.
The lockdown period just flew by,
He kept me busy with no time to fret or cry,
I will always be grateful, for I was one of the chosen few.
Master, bless me, so I can live up to your expectation.
I am not going to call this my covid-19 seva,
I don’t want such negativity to destroy my memories.
It will remain in my heart as a bounty –
This spectacular seva of 2020!
