O dog! My experiences about life
Resonate so much with yours.
Aren’t we love and compassion incarnate?
Don’t we live for love alone?
Remember what Rumi said,
‘Since love is everything that exists.’
Yes we exist for love…….and nothing else.
We never made of ourselves
Prisoners of time and space,
Nor did we follow a caravan of despair.
The arrow of our compassion
Never felt the need for a bow
And when we did falllike
Red leaves of Maples in Autumn,
Our silent resilience helped us
Bounce back proving that we are
The perfect epitome of strength
Where the Yin and the Yang are complimentary.
Each downfall kindled hope and love
And like roses drenched in dew,
We showed our pristine beauty to the world
Enjoying the fleeting moments
Of profundity of passionate verve
With clear-sighted earnestness
While the lilies bloom in the silent lake
Teased by the wanton wind.
O my dog! Never leave me alone.
If we die, together we will die
With no regrets or teary frets
For ours was a life well lived,
Our sadness like the soul-wrenching
Notes of the violin
And our joys,drunk in love
Like the colors of the rainbow
Close to each other
In a great love making.
