Your Face: A Galactic Window Of Happiness

Walking – have I not been
For thousands of years?
If not with this name and form
But as the species human
and as its habit of life.
And in this journey so long
Despite some sporadic rest and recess
of death and birth
and of periods of lull
as a settled person somewhere
with a name and form,
I have experienced fatigue,
restlessness and dejection
of centuries!

From the time beginningless
This journey of mine
The universe has witnessed
(And also sometimes
The universe appointed me to watch it
as the witness one!)
My differentiation from the universe
For reasons valid or not so valid
Has caused me pain and loneliness

And I have witnessed this pain of mine
Myself
On behalf of the
Self imposed beloved universe

Yes, I have been a witness
to the suffering of millennia,
and the vicissitude s of existence
and the ghastly dance of discomfort!

Then, suddenly you came along
First, with your possibility (of being)
Then your manifestation
May be you were there
Beyond my witness sight
Perhaps you sat with an accomplished smile
Beyond the boundaries of toil
At the yonder of human experience
of stay, toil and persevere

I don’t know whether you have
always walked beside me
in this journey infinite or you will
continue to be a consort
But the joy of your company now
Tells me that you, - your face
Is the galactic window of happiness
For me for endless time to come!

    'i don't know if you have always walked beside me'
    in that last stanza says it all.
    th lord has always walked with us.

    Sure, in the family life there are few moments of happiness like what is said in the poem.

    Beautiful. There's always that one special someone.. who makes you feel that you will never be alone again. You wait for them for what seems like forever, but when they come it was all worth it. Doesn't seem that long at all.
