You! Only You! Poem by Mohammad Younus

You! Only You!



Who says that I did not meet you face to face?
Each and everything in your universe is your face!
I trace you in everything with my heart's eyes;
With my heart's eyes shut,
I searched you...
...just your countenance...
...in holy scriptures of all faiths;
I searched you...
...just your countenance...in worship houses of all faiths;
I roamed through the wilderness of weeds and bushes;
I found --- your countenance --- nowhere in the world;
I was lost in disgrace due to my delusion;
I went from place to place in search of the persons...
...who might have seen you;
I found them clueless - having no knowledge and unaware;
I was hopeless—broken and frustrated!
I thought you were the other;
I thought you lived in the heaven, sitting on the chair;
Away from the universe and having a separate existence!
Last, you graced me — you opened my heart's eyes;
I saw you in every rose and every thorn,
In the heavens, on the earth, and in everything in between!
What did I find?
Only You expressing your beauty through everything!
You! Only You!
You! Only You!
No Me! No Me!
