உறக்கத்திலும் எழுந்தோடி உதவிடுவாய்
இந்திய ஒருமைப்பாடு உன் உருவில்
நடமாட யாம் கண்டோம்.
சமய பேதங்கள் களைந்தெடுத்து
சமனிலைபேணி நட்பு கொண்டாய்.
உள்ளங்கள் அனைத்தையும் கவர்ந்தாய்
கனிவான உன்பேச்சால் !
சவுதிவாழ் தமிழனுக்கு தனிமதிப்பு
உன்னால் வந்த உயர்வன்றோ !
மாணவர் நலம்நாடி ஓய்வின்றி உழைத்தாய்
உன் நாடி துடித்து ஓயும்வரை.
சேவைக்கென்றே பிறந்தவன் நீ-பிறர்
தேவையறிந்து பணிமுடித்தாய் !
செங்கடல் ஓரத்தில் தமிழுக்கு அணிசேர்க்கும்
சங்கம் கண்ட பாவலனே !
உனைப்போல் ஒரு தமிழன் இனி எமக்கு கிடைப்பானா
பனைபோல்தன் வாழ்வினை தமிழுக்கு தருவானா ?
இறையருள் உன்னை சொர்க்கம் சேர்த்திட- திரு
மறையளித்தவனை மண்டியிட்டு வேண்டுகிறேன் !
Nizamuddin (Abu Marwan)
