Thank you

I looked back and saw

So many mistakes that I did,

Fell so many times,

SO much of anguish

And yet I survived.

 

How I thought?

How could I survive my fallen deeds

How could I survive such wicked blows

How could there be sunshine

How could I not be alone.

 

And then I realized,

I was never alone,

I erred but you erased

I fell but you held

I was a miscreant but you rescued.

 

I felt lonely

But I was never alone

I shivered

but was never cold

Your loving touch was always there

 

And today i remember all those times

when you were there

And yet I searched for you

Today is a special day wherein

I THANK YOU.

 

And a small prayer too

Please be with me always

Like you have always been

Guiding, Holding

Enveloping me with your love.

A wish

Times are changing;

There may be good

There may be worse.

 

I may be here

I may be gone.

 

The ones with me may change,

Some may not approve.

 

But whatever happens my dear Lord.

Please keep me near your lotus feet.

 

Let me glorify you,

may I wash your feet.

 

Let me serve you

Let me serve your own.

 

But never let me go far from YOU

Accept

Very often we get flustered because we did not get what we wanted, for which we worked hard  or what we think we deserved.

In many cases our past karma plays a very big role.

And in some-God’s will.

Remember when you were small and wanted a chocolate just before a meal and you were forbidden to eat some. You cried, you wailed, you threw a tantrum but still you did not get. Why? Because for you a meal was more important than a chocolate.

Similarly if you are lucky-God has other plans for you; something which you deserve and which is good for you. So you may aspire for a dream job or an increment but maybe you will not get as HE has some major plans for you.

You may say that here goes a loser. No. I speak from experience.  I have gone after the proverbial name, fame, money too but nothing gave me peace. Untill I let life take its course and HE to guide me. And then I got peace and bliss. So was I an escapist. No. I was just accepting the path laid by HIM.

They say, I say

I had written this poem some time back and reblogging it today.
The path of bhakti is not easy and accompanied with lot of criticism. But then if you have faith, you have to be steadfast and continue your ‘yatra’

 

They Say, I say

They look at me and say,
What a dull life!!

Always calling out HIS name,
Rushing for HIS services whenever free
Attending sermons, classes

What a bore;
No fun!!

I look at them and say,
What a shallow life!!

Running for name, fame, money
Gossip, shopping, Party,
Trips, frolic.

Fun, maybe,
But oh, so momentary!!
