There was a time
When my arrival in America
Brought the saddest misfortune
For our entire family.
Everybody in the family suffered,
And you suffered the utmost
Wild and unspeakable,
Shattered your earthly frame.
Later, good fortune—worldwide recognition
Of your youngest brother —
Proved your Rani-di (Queen) name to be true.
Fathomless became your pride in me.
Sri Chinmoy, Rani-di, I do know where you live, Agni Press, 1999
