A New Morning... A New Beginning... A New Hope.

O’ Rama, I pine for your pious presence,

Beloved, this exile seems endless;

My Heart is lost somewhere

In a domicile of narrow gas-lit streets,

Look, even the candle fails to assuage

This abysmal ache that persists

Deep in the alley of my Soul.


O’ Lakshmana, I suffer to grasp

For one last breath

At the shore of boundless sorrows,

As I am swayed away

By my own ocean of tears;

Where has this destiny brought me?


O’ Shiva, O Warrior of Warriors!

O’ Destroyer of fear! O’ epitome of Light!

Be still, my Beloved, be still.

Let your hand remain above my head,

Caressing my weeping Heart,

As I remain speechless

With your smile-Delight.

Shiva is within us all, for those of us that know the law will fight for what is right and good.

So beautiful and powerful!

Yes--Shiva gives me strength whenever I look upto to him. I can see him even with closed eyes because Shiva is within me. And I can face all adversaries because he is walking along with me.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem!

Hi Deb,

You are so right. I couldn’t agree with you more. Spot on… spot on! Thank you so much. Love.

Chitrangada ji,

Yes, yes. He is truly our healer and protector. I call His name in tough times and during the times of happiness. And, oh boy! What strength He gives! You are a precious Soul if you see Him. Treasure this, please. All my Love to you on this blessed Tuesday.

“Aaj mangal-vaar hai. Maha-veer ka vaar hai” – such a beautiful bhajan! Just came into my mind :)

Sid,

I thank you, Dear. Have a great week!
