My Only True Friend

My Only True Friend

So hectic is mundane life;
Human beings can barely enjoy time.

To no human heart I’m now attached,
Fragile expectations have long ago been smashed.

OM, OM,  OM* ’ in my mind his name rhymes,
 Senses , soul connect to the Omniscient Divine;
My anger, fears, torments He deeply understands,
His  justice, love, strength aren’t like
slippery grains of sand.

I feel for me He’s always there,
Whatever He does He’s always fair,
He’s my only true friend –the
whom in my life flawlessly,
constantly shines.

    Divinity. Divine love. And, most important, love for divine with or without any attributes, is a universal and profound human need; here, well-expressed in the tradition of Bhakti Sahitya by a talented poet.
