Amitava Sur (20.01.1950 / Kolkata)
The day when the end will come
I’ll depart this earth at once,
Leaving behind all earthly things –
I’ll cross seven rivers and seven seas,
Thereafter, crossing the seven skies –
I’ll move further to an eternal height.
Far and far away from this material world-
I’ll be in a silent and solitary place,
A place of wisdom with no cheer or no pain -
Free from any material gain.
Being alone in that holy place-
Once I’ll be awaken again
I'll know who am I
And reveal the soul of mine.
Earlier, several times in so many ways –
I tried to see me and know myself.
But till today until now –
All my efforts were in vain.
But there on that very day, surely I’ll know myself
What I'm thriving so long so far -
Will be known yo me right on that day.
No more I'll remain in the dark -
By knowing my radiant inner being.
I’ll be awaken and be content -
In revealing the graceful soul of mine.
