Oh! The thunderbolt i hear-
It fills me with fear!
But oh! not the sound of it,
But the seperation it brings with it!
The clouds are dark,
Their resemblance to You quite stark:
But oh! They send down torrents of rain:
That bring with them seperation's pain!
The raindrops kiss the grass,
For a scenery, they make a beautiful pass:
But oh! i end up kissing the door,
For i can walk out no more!
Your house is yonder,
To there, the mind does wander;
But oh! the pained heart fearfully wonders:
Are my chances of seeing You gone asunder??
The rain comes, to satisfy the earth's thirst,
But oh! what of the thirst i nurse!!!
The mind derides its selfishness-
But oh! To see Your form so blemishless!
In this little heart, there is clamour:
O Monarch of my Mind! all my hopes stammer:
Surrendered unto You, forever:
Do hear my prayer!
Your beautiful smile always gladdening-
Now, thinking of it, is maddening!
Your sea-like eyes of endless depth!
Thinking of them, now i fret!!
The raindrops came splashing
Perhaps even they were for You searching!
Please consider: i am, for one glance, yearning!
Kindly grant me that, all hurdles notwithstanding.
Let the rains die down,
Let there be no other hurdles now!
O dearest lover! Let me run to You:
And the lessons of love, learn anew!!
