Poems

 

 

 

 

 

Uncertainty had engrossed me,
You arrived bringing alone the certainty,
Darkness had engulfed me,
You arrived bringing along the light,
For the life without reason,
You gave reason to live,
For the death without reason,
You gave reason to die,
And in this joy alone I live,
Forgetting my heaven,
Taking refuge within your arms.

Lost in the ocean,
My lonely boat was,
Lost in the dreams,
My lonely life was,
To the shore, you came,
Bringing me along,
To the life, you came,
Bringing me alive,
And in this joy alone I live,
Forgetting my home,
Taking refuge at your feet.

Silence had captivated me,
You arrived bringing alone the words,
Despairs had overwhelmed me,
You arrived bringing along the joys,
For the heart without reason,
You gave reason to beat,
For the eyes without reason,
You gave reason to cry,
And in this joy alone I live,
Forgetting my sanity,
Taking refuge in your madness.

Lost in the thoughts,
My lonely mind was,
Lost in the griefs,
My lonely soul was,
To the horizon, you came,
Raising me along,
To the life, you came,
Bringing me the hope,
And in this joy alone I live,
Forgetting myself,
Taking refuge with your love.
~Sw. Chidananda Tirtha
