Being lonely was my only regret.
A big void in my life he left.
Why me? Why this pain? What was my fault?
Since then, I kept my heart locked in a vault.
Love is fake, love is an illusion.
To my heart, this seemed the only solution.
No more love, just bitterness and depression.
Resurrecting my life, sending him in oblivion.
And then you came with your amazing grace.
Out of my misery, I realized the world is a beautiful place.
I see your reflection in every face.
A sense of belongingness is what I needed to embrace.
O my Master! You came when life looked so bleak.
Healing me, bringing me closer to the Divine with the words you speak.
Love, grace, contentment, fulfilment at its utmost peak.
What a beautiful path! There’s nothing more I seek!
What is Love? Extract of a talk by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
