Breaking through the opposing gale,
With horizon twilight red;
She paced beside ahead of me;
A blithe spirit got laid.
I saw her once amidst the crowd,
she hid her face from mine;
I still saw her through the veil of locks,
Her eyes did sparkly shine.
The look not love but deep and dark,
Darker than the moonless night;
The look that threw my delusive mind;
Which snatched my power to fight.
I forgot all these and proceeded through,
My denuded tumultuous life;
Until today, she came again;
To ignite my soul from strife.
Her hair flew past, with scented air,
Her lips bespoke of peace;
Her eyes spoke me a thousand words;
My race of mind did cease.
And then she was gone!
Disappeared through the fog;
I still kept looking for her;
I smelt the air and felt her soul;
I freed myself from fear.
Why did she come to me only?
Was she my illusive love?
Why did I feel tranquility?
I felt the peace-white dove.
Like this, she comes to all my dreams,
I still keep waiting by;
I know I will meet her again;
I know she’ll come and fly.
She’ll come and soothe me till the end of the day,
When all are tired and done;
The talons of time will carry me;
Till we see a bright new sun.
