Gift From Above - Poem by bandi srinivasa rao

You made my soul slew
Round the raw roads
Where can only reach a few
With sound and sublime senses.

Lost my sleep and bread
And God! myself I forgot
Left with nothing my poor head
Blank blank is all it‘s got.

Never in best of my dreams
Nor when idly I roamed
In quest for amorous realms
Had such a jocund mood.

Is it a pain so good?
Or shall I call it love
Nay, it’s a gift from God
Sent with care from above.
