You, my inseparable friend
Came to join me at my very birth
That I know.
You won’t ever leave my side
Ever so close about me that you are
Though I see you not.
I am and therefore you are.
You are and therefore am I.
You are eternal, you are ethereal
You are ever-existing and without exception
You are inevitable
And so, from time to time
You make me realize of your existence.
And it’s not just me,
Everyone is being aware of your existence.
You are a ladder
To another phase in Life’s journey.
One becomes free of cravings-
Your contemplation purifies the soul,
Makes the importance of time known.
You are synonymous to my life
And an unexpressed form of it.
My worries take me closer to you.
You are the master of my existence
For you are the one
Who destroys the auxiliary things of my life.
You are and therefore has my life become worthwhile.
An expressionless nullity you are;
If not today, surely tomorrow
You shall sneak to my side
And sit me on your lap.
Mine you are
For no one can die my death.
The feeling of union with you
I can’t relate to anyone
You’ve set the limits to my ability to know
I am now realizing
That I am just a futile emotion
And hence, O Death! You happen to be
My ultimate form and outcome.
