On a quest to search you—
many questions still remain unanswered.
You, a stranger, an enigma and mystical.
I wonder who you really are?
Not again, don’t step into my thoughts.
Shall I let go of my quest, as you seem too far.
You stir my being, question my journey.
I long to touch you, you the stranger!
Shall I seek you through the Northern lights?
Or see your light in the Fireflies?
Experience your wrath in the Volcanoes
Or your myriad colors through a Rainbow!
You are inaccessible like Moon the stars.
Folklore says I must tread Mount Kailash.
Crying and yelling, I even searched for you on my dad’s funeral.
But now, I find you everywhere!!
I feel you in the raindrops.
I feel you in the breeze.
I feel you through the sun rays.
When I close my eyes in ecstasy,
I, finally feel you within me…!
