Like a Lily do I grow

Like in a river do I flow

Soft and glossy do I look

Firmly float on the base so strong

Leaves are flat to hold me tight

Life is struggle I have to fight


Red, salmon, pink and white

Yellow, orange, peach and black

So many are the shades of life

In an age from a girl to wife

I be gentle, I be strong

I as a woman in a throng

I on my foot like to stand

For my self-respect I withstand

I am soft, but inside not

My delicate body's stem so strong


I a woman, I a water lily

Though in water,

Do I survive

For I fight the waves

I fight the Sun

I look at the Moon

And the shiny thinkers

Pick me up if you like

Buy me for I am beauty


Water lily, my name you know

In the hands of an Indian you show

Look at us with an open mind

Develop your conduct and be so kind

We are the beauty's

The real ones you know

This is a photograph for a show


Our life is same,

Same is our fame

I, water lily wish to say

You my mother for I am sure

Will let me grow

See the world

Not die in the womb

For you are human


I a flower

You my gardener

Will nurture me as long

I live for you

Give you peace of mind

Look at me

As purely white

For Beauty is true

And truth is beauty
