A Star

A Star

Having lost my path at dark night,
I searched for a star bright
In the vast welkin in cloudy attire
With drizzling eyes and emotional desire.

Trudging around with craving cries
And saddening memories of silent sighs
That had sunk into the gloomy ocean,
I sought a star with a weeping emotion.

Came the soothing soft eastern air;
Floating away the clouds, it made the sky clear;
A twinkling star to my somber soul,
Spreading shimmer showed the universe whole.
