Senator Edward Kennedy

Bright was his star,
Faster has he run,
Deepest is his sight.

Four Smiles of God:
Joe, Jack, Bobby, Teddy.
Two Smiles of God we now see
With the inner eye,
Two with the outer.

God's fourth Smile
Is never alone.
His burden, the state;
His burden, the country.
Day in, day out
He braves the storms
And bitter odds.

The Future will clasp him
With destined glory.
Sri Chinmoy, Kennedy: The Universal Heart, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
