Farewell Amigos (A Song Of Dr John Celes)
Farewell Amigos (A Song of Dr John Celes)
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
'Tis time to quit this lovely place!
Good-bye dear PMC;
I try to keep a composed face;
I'm leaving finally.
This place was like a Paradise,
When I'd entered here;
The place now rots, but is still nice;
To me, it still is dear.
I can't forget my pleasant days,
In years almost twenty;
I had my trials in the race,
God gave His grace plenty.
The beauty of the campus great
Kept me very healthy;
I pray its problems soon abate,
And all can be wealthy.
But do your duty, love your job,
And show your loyalty;
Do put your mind, heart, soul, not sob,
To save this place lies in your hands -
Selflessness is the key;
It is not late, some hope still stands,
You can cure its malady.
Be sincere in your efforts all,
You are in dire straits!
I hear my inner voice' call;
As God opens new gates.
I leave you all with anguished heart,
But I must go just now;
I kept this place alive by art,
And grace of God above.
My home-town calls me to settle,
I have no other go;
I've got to sell my left mettle,
Some risks, I undergo.
I love the students and all staff,
On academic peak;
I leave this place with smiles, I laugh -
‘Never think you are weak! '
I pray the chaos settles soon;
I wish you, ‘All the best! '
This place and you aren't bane but boon -
‘Be safe and keep your nest! '
My two decades of struggles end;
I leave quite happily;
My angels will help you defend
This fort, and live nobly.
I thank each soul who helped me win
The game, I chose to play;
Do keep your soul avoiding sin,
Await a better day.
Dedicated with love to the Management, Staff and students
Of IRT PMC& H, RTS and SoN, Perundurai.
