The day I met my soul.

Some left me for I no longer had wealth
And some saw me as a burden
With my shrivelling health
Few who remained a little longer with me
Left for no use was I to them
Finally the caravan left
Leaving me stranded in the path of life.

Yet I did not feel scared.
I felt a veil of darkness being lifted from my eyes
Illuminating the dark caves of the heart with real colours of life, bereft of any pigments.


While a sheet of cool calmness
Descended over me, healing the wounds that expectations had gifted.

One has to finally exit the gates of life alone, I realised
Even though surrounded in life
With people and things galore.

Thankful was I that the
Doors of truth had opened much before my end
Giving me enough time to shed off the
Ephemaral,the artificial and
the insanity that had clouded my vision for a lifetime.

That is when I felt
I had encountered my soul
As I prostrated before the Almighty
for making me aware of what really mattered in me,
Much before the doors start closing upon me.

    So many of us are fortunate enough to realise what matters most is the Ultimate reality …the Supreme Soul!

    for making me aware of what really mattered in me,
    Much before the doors start closing upon me…
