Drizzling and gloomy sometimes,
Bright sunshine at other times;
With the oft-changing weather I decide
To stay within my home’s confines.
Like a vine that grows around a tree,
Clinging to it,
Let my love grow around you;
I like the moon
That embellishes the sky,
Let my love embellish your thoughts;
Like swarms of human beings
That crowd the market,
Let memories of my love crowd your mind
And like a ship
That lies at anchor at the shore,
Let my love anchor at your consciousness.
Green grass grows and grows
When moist is the earth;
Sweet honey flows and flows
When bees dance in mirth.
Birds soar to dizzy heights
But would soon perch on a tree,
For rest they should, when darkness descends,
To set their minds free.
Man attains calm wisdom
After passing through the travails
And sheds away all his arrogance
When his will no more prevails;
Soon he learns of a Higher Being
Which has a vast sway
Over things and men and kings and women
That are destined to decay.
4.Fell off His Pedestal
He was a new reporter
And he had many a friend;
He turned events into news
And covered VIP’s views.
One day he fell off his pedestal
From a ‘news reporter’ to ‘news’.
When he was killed by a
Hostile group of Jews.
5.The Only Certainty
In this uncertain world
You are the only Certainty;
In this ever-changing world
You are the only Unchanging entity.
When sorrow grips man,
You are his only Hope
And when help eludes him
In search of You alone, he does grope.
You are the fulfiller of desires
Of every being on this earth
And, these desires having been fulfilled,
All beings recognize Your worth.
