Miss Maya, I heard your voice today
Reciting your poems elegantly
Miss Maya, you have left us now
You’re in a peaceful place
Miss Maya, Let us know how things are
What really matters in this world of ours
Is wealth and success what brings us tranquility
Or is it a gentle and pure heart?
Is status and prestige what stands us in good stead
Or it is service to our fellow man?
Are the trials of life without purpose
Or are they an essential part of life?
Miss Maya, now you know the workings
Of this world better than us
Give us your wisdom
Send us your blessings
Cheer our heart
