the maid named Anu

there is a maid in my office,
who keeps the 4th floor rest room clean
she is about 25 yrs young
and her name is also Anu

she is very thin and dark
looks almost undernourished
her black curly hair oiled
and always tied into a tight bun

her husband died when she was 22 yrs
and she has a 3 yr old son who adores her
she goes about her day so cheerfully
and has the most vibrant smile of all

for reasons I don’t know,
this Anu absolutely adores me
she waits eagerly to greet me daily
and my presence lights up her days
she talks about me to all her friends
and misses me dearly when I’m not around

today I gave her a big chocolate bar
and she told me how much she loves me
sometimes the simplest of the people
present us with the loveliest of the affections

Perhaps she recognizes in you the gift of humanity thats seems lacking in so many humans.

Its not a coincidence Anu, that this connection was made, with a name-sake. I have no doubt you and your friend are on a profound journey together! Best, rama
