Lost in The Valley of Sorrow. By Manatita
Lost in the Valley of Sorrow: A Prayer.
I am looking for a road I cannot find.
The way is too dense and the Path
Is engulfed by shadows.
All around me is the melody of suffering;
The transparent drops trickling down my eyelids,
Epitomise the reflections of a saddened soul.
Oh Great One, You have given me more than I can bear!
I have always tried to please You.
Now what have You given me in return?
Alas! I see only blackness, and I am sunk in despair.
Dearly Beloved, do strengthen my heart, and
Enhance my capacity to see Your Light.

A comforting glow.
Sun shines on a radiant face.
Dazzling full moon;
Blue sky with snow-coloured clouds.
The songs of winding tadpoles.
Still pond, meandering streams;
Delicate drops falling of the lotuses.
The cool of spring rain.
Nature breathes through my pores
And invigorates my life.
It refreshes the spirit and
Rejuvenates my soul.
Immersed within its majesty,
I stand unmoving in peaceful stillness.

The music of the mind appeases the senses.
The music of togetherness tends to mend fences.
Beauty and radiance maintain their sweet smile,
Sunflowers dance to the breath of the child.
Nature’s rhythm is a powerful start,
To the music that thrills an aspiring heart.
Gratitude sings in quest of the Goal,
Aspiration touches the Light of the soul.
Ambition music serenades the finite;
While Soulful music embraces the infinite.
