Unending Love

 

From my diary…

To my readers i am giving my most cherished and loved poem of all times and beyond ages by my favorite poet Rabindranath Tagore.

               UNENDING LOVE

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age old pain,
It’s ancient tale of being apart or together,
As i stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole star piercing the darkness of time
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount,
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same.
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found it’s end in you,
The love of all man’s days, both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal lift,
The memories of all lovers merging with this one love of ours-
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

Everyone needs a shelter for solace at some point of time during the day.. To have their peace of mind back.. some find it in family or friends, some in music, some in solitude, some in books, some in hanging out, some in solitude and some like me in poetry.
