Diwali Preparations

I’ve got the Diyas
I’ve got the Mithai
I’ve got the New Vessels
I’ve got the Flowers
But where are You ?

I’ve got the Kheel
I’ve got the Khilona
I’ve got the Festoons
I’ve got Fairy Lights
But where are You ?

I’ve got the Sparklers
I’ve got Firecrackers
I’ve got Coloured Matches
I’ve got the Candles
But where are You ?

I’ve got Brass Lamps
I’ve got Incense Sticks
I’ve got the Wicks
I’ve got the Oil
But where are You ?

I’ve got the Idols
I’ve got the Scriptures
I’ve got the Hymnbooks
I’ve got the Altar
But where are You ?

I have got Friends
I have got Family
I have got Company
I have got Helpers
But where are You ?

I have a Heart
I have a Mind
I have a Soul
I have tears in my eyes
But where are You ?

They say You do not exist
But the Light tells me You do
They say the Darkness isn’t You
But I know that is You too .
You are nowhere . But Everywhere, it’s You !
