Strangers in the night…
Yet you remain in my light…
O’ my dear please hear my plight…
Do not soar away….
On proud wings of flight…
Your shadow was by my side…
During all my lonely nights!!!

The fountain of love dried…
The honeycomb of sweetness emptied…
Now that you have gone…
Banished from your love…
The oasis has vanished!!!

The monsoon pours everywhere…
Except in my garden…
The Gods told me…
Only the desert appreciates the rain…
Told me to build my own oasis…
And sent your magical love to me…
Sadly to turn into a mirage…
That evaporated and vanished…
In the heat of the sun…
When you turned around to go…
All the good went away…
From the word goodbye!!!

T’was then just a matter of time…
The salt from my tears consumed the oasis…
I turned into a seer of deceit…
And walked away from the dead oasis…
In search of the truth…
Even today…I remain…a seeker…
Waiting to find…why it was all so!!!

I only seek now…only truth…
Without which life renewed or torn…
Is weightless and futile…
The soil has eroded in the flow of the river…
Far too much water has flowed beneath the bridges…
Roses do not bloom in deserts…
All fruits including the forbidden ones…
Do not now reside in the garden of Adam and Eve…
Thus on the eve of my life…
The time has come now…
To turn from a seer to a sage…
And morph into the garb of the eternal seeker…
Of the truth that lies beneath the mystery of life!!!
