A Point - Poem by Savita Tyagi

An affable desire rising from deeps of my heart
To search for a point where you and I can meet
A segue from rift to harmony
A soft touch, a moment of peace
A place to rest for restless mind
When bitter redundant passions turn sangfroid
I look around to see sky and earth meeting at horizon
The sanguine dusk embracing the night and day
The river rushing to meet the ocean
All my life I have been searching for something like wise
Never knowing the abscess of sorrow
Needs to be dissolved first to seek joy
The nub of life- the point of nirvana
But I need you to hold my hand to walk with me
Let's walk together in a world
Where mysteries of life still unfold
All those years I have tried to touch you in vain
I will take two steps for your one
But you have to move from your point of isolation.

    ''I will take two steps for your one
    But you have to move from your point of isolation.''- when we truly love, no sacrifice is great enough. I very much enjoy reading this poem.

    This is a very touching love poem. I like the line about needing to clear out an abscess of sorrow before love can grow. The desire to lead another to a higher plane of existence is beautiful. Thanks! (Report) Reply

    Savita there are two lines in a ghazal Yeh kiska intezar hay available on this web site - -
    Kutch hum barhen kutch aao tum, yeh fasley mitaen hum,
    Gale milen miten gile, yeh kiska intezar hay.
    A point in all the affairs of life exists whereat the distances are eliminated, but efforts are needed to locate that point.
