Life prose poem

Photo by jurvetson

I asked to my father
Baba, What is life ?
He politely said to me, ” Life is Duty . ”

I asked to my mother
Maa, What is life ?
She said to me with smile, ” Life is Responsibility . ”

I asked to my teacher
Sir, What is life ?
He said to me with love, ” Life is Education . ”

I asked to my spiritual master
Gurujee, What is life ?
He said to me with confidence, ” Life is Devotion . ”

Today my son who reads in class nine
Asked me
Babai, What is life ?
I have said to him, ” Dear, You are my life . ”

( Father means BABA, BABAI and Mother means MAA in Bengali language . Gurujee means spiritual master in Indian society )
