Where did I lose my light
Floating with the clouds, suddenly a little too laden with water
Is it the water or is it the little bit of salt in the water which was the undoing
Was it the water in the cloud or was it a little too gladdened heart which burst empty

Walked all day to reach a bright fragrant evening
May be a little too late
May be the lamps have been blown out
The fragrance exhausted
May be the lawn is long since deserted
May be the lamps were never lit
May be lawn was never inhabited
May be I lost my way

I see some glow worms
I will sing the ballad of the nomad lass
Heard some fellow in Hamlin had drawn bundles of pure joy
I will summon a million glow worms
Flicker by flicker the glow of life
I will captivate it,
Gather it in my eyes
Line my eyes with the rainbow
The water in the clouds will then but only add to me
My gaze will colour the world
The world will colour my view
With the wings of dreams my feet will leave the brown beneath
The heart will sail till the toes graze the dewed greens
Till the fragrant breezes push the wings of dreams higher up
Soaring so high that the drops of Manna on the toes sparkle like diamonds
Breaking the light behind the mountains into a seven coloured fan
Will keep soaring high till the air around is cool to my heart's content
So light, when I close my eyes I can feel the weight of my lashes
When I open my eyes, all I see is the green brightness
Clean brightness
The quiet and warmth of His kingdom
Solace, Soothing, healing warmth
Bright, light laughter
Rhythm in gait
I close my eyes again
The warm lids soothe my eyes
The clouds anoint my forehead
I go into a slumber
With the promise of this sleep being reality
Not to be woken up by the cacophony of a different reality
I will walk towards this land, His land
Our cradle, His creation around us

Don’t ever try to become somebody else’s dream. That is when you lose the freedom to shape your life your own way. It is way more rewarding ...
