Reborn In Your Embrace - Poem by Arun Maji

No, I don't love you.
Then I wonder
why I long to hear you?
The softness of your whisper
The glitter of your laughter
The sparkle of your fervour-
all, I long them all.

See, the glow in horizon.
Wearing red, you appear there.
Your arms stretched to embrace me
Your smile bloomed to nourish me
Your warmth alive to awaken me.

And I am awoken.
I am awoken to this beautiful world
The flowing river, the blowing breeze
The singing swallow, the blooming flowers
All so magnificent, all so welcoming
With your gracious appearance.

Yet I know I don't love you.
Love is too long of a journey to walk on.
Yet I am on it.
I am crawling but I am moving.
And if you are around
I would go on and on
Until my soul dies and heart stops.

I am so absorbed in you!
Your lips sweeten my soul
your whisper dances with my heart
your smile brighten my existence.
Even thinking about you
Make me smile, make me sing
Make me dance in rain.

You know, life is always painful.
Yet no pain seems to be a pain
If you allow me- to hold you,
touch you, care you.

Often I wonder
if love is the greatest panacea of human suffering
then why human is lost
in mirage of earthly pleasure?
I am blessed with power of your love.
In your embrace-
I see what can not be seen
I feel what can not be felt.
I am so rich, I am so happy.

I bow before you-
you have freed me from dungeon of suffering
you have lifted me from darkness of ignorance.
O my love
I am reborn in your embrace.
