The Night has a thousand eyes,
And the Day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.

As I watch someone lose hope I have this dreary feeling inside me- not all ends are new beginnings...

Be Aware

The Alchemist says that when we truly want something and are walking down the path that destiny has laid down for us- then the whole world conspires so that we reach our destination and get that which we desire. So the first step to reach the destination is to know what it is. To be aware of what we want.

We all choose what we want. Destiny just gives us a chance to make those choices.

And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

- Kahlil Gibran (The Prophet)

The horizon is not bound by the wind. It never was. It never will be.

One of these days...

I hear the wave from afar
It comes crashing to the shore

I blindly run out to the beach
The wave is now within my reach

The same thrill again
As it was the first time

The same greeting again
As was given in the last sign

But wave does not stay for long
It retreats- and it feels so wrong...

Going back into the vast ocean
Where it came from

I want to dissolve in the wave
I plead- "Stay... That one moment- let me save..."

It looks at me and says- "Need to go now"
"I would be back- I can't say when or where or how"

I run after it- the wave turns back and stops me..
It makes the treacherous sand hold me in the sea...

It says- "You cannot come farther than these footsteps few-
Else, I can promise, that the ocean will claim you"

I say I want to be claimed- for that is better than this thirst
The wave says- "For a fulfilled dream- you would live through pain first"

But wait- my footsteps- they are washed away!
They will not be there- to be seen another day...

I shout after the wave- Where are the footprints that I made?
The wave says- "They are in me now- I took them-
from the place where they were laid"

The wave goes back and the sand slips away
I suddenly feel weightless- and the wave has its say...

"I would be back" is what I hear in my heart
Will it enough for all this time apart...?

On the shore- gazing at the the ocean- day and night I sit...
The wait is long and painful- but every bit worth it.

Over and over I hear it- as the wave solemnly says-
"You will be the ocean I return to- one of these days"

One day is gone today...

One day will come tomorrow...
