When arrives the time for sleep,
Instead attention for another to keep.
The same for when arriving time to eat,
At mealtime awaits patiently at his seat.
Eating or sleeping Rama first he must see,
Only then to act is Lakshmana free.
This is his vow personally adopted,
For service to Rama in life he opted.
Younger’s stature this superior makes,
Supreme delight from him Rama takes.
Their mutual love melts my heart too,
Lakshmana, the best brother this world ever knew.
