lost to discover

i lost to discover

i silently stayed silent without talk
snaking through the silence of thought
as i stayed silent without walk
as i stood amid the roar that caught
me for a moment in matter than lot
in my hand the grains of sand i got
through my fingers and hand 
as i thought, 

how shall the solemn song be sung? 
how shall my burial rite be done? 
who shall cry for me when i last gone? 
whose life were then than now? 
what really matters to man than now? 
why fear death upon our eyes, 
but love to shine upon our eyes? 
.. i thought
without talk, 

the memory of then emerged
from the night around me
and searched
each corner of life around me
but found me drenched
in many than known about me
like the flowers that matched
the one in my heart to surround me
.. as i thought
silently without talk

i lost to discover beyond desire
i searched narrowly the lines in dire
they hold a treasure, thirst and hunger
scarcely begun to word my lips without anger
and still silent, i thought for a longer
more time than mine with urge, 
what did i not express? 
how am i not drowned? 
i still frowned
to think as i stood to a ground
of thoughts and proud
to do more than then on my ground

i silently stayed silent without talk
snaking my mind, 
through the silence of thought
a thought i lost but last to find
and picked myself up to walk
shaking my time
to walk on the next thought
and said to mine, 
do more now than then
o' dear abandoned one in thought
