Close Your Eyes - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Close your eyes and it is night
And at night you sleep thinking life closed.

We think We built a house with a desire
To have all happiness but the house set on fire.

Such is the law of nature as you know fish is
Not the enemy of anyone but still everybody wants to kill it.

O my dear, You are only one and You know everything perfect
We are many and ignorant we know nothing that is right .

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We know not what is truth and what is real and yet
We are hankering after happiness knowing fully well
There is no true happiness here except Your grace and bliss.
