Ascend the Peak
Ascend the Peak
Time will not cease at any moment,
It doesn't know and so will move on,
With time flow memories and life,
Dreams will arise, dreams will end.
Open now the diary of life gone by,
Have your eyes relished the sights
And hugged the moments they met ?
Each move of the beloved was bliss.
And each smile a breeze of love,
Did you see lotus darts of stares
And grasp subtle whispers on lids ?
Open your eyes and look again.
A sound pierces into silence
And usurps a niche in the space,
You can't take back once it fled,
Like immortals, it survives ever.
Did you say words with warmth
And grace the lips with serenity ?
Hurled love to hurts and abuses,
Like balm came out your words.
Words make one wane or wax,
Have you felt joy of the speech
And caught the cadence all along ?
Wipe malice off and speak again.
Did you hear beloved 's words
And the moves they made to you ?
Each syllable laced with deep love,
With all passion lifted from the heart.
Did you forgive if you heard harsh
And forget the jerks of the tongue ?
If you hear words, hear to heart too,
Remember how you longed to hear.
Like oceans, savor the salt in love,
Like clouds, take lightening in arms,
Hear the reathing, hear the throbbing,
Hear with love and hear again.
Did you see what you wished to see ?
Did you speak what you loved to say ?
Did you hear what you aspired to hear ?
Ascend the peak while you are awake.
Put asunder each veil you encounter,
Like the sun, penetrate the darkest doubt,
Die to all prejudices and affectations,
Raise the self, siege the paradise lost.
