Union Cures The Illness - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

For any illness,
The symptoms and signs are within oneself, but
The cure is obtaining medicines from source outside;

For the illness of a well jeweled mistress
Who is longing for union with lover,
She herself is the medicine,
Union cures the illness.
