The Essence Of Life

Water splashed across the window
Struck high the thunderstorm
My fingers tapped the table
While I sat in my dorm
Watching the merciless rain
Communing to me

Taking me back to the aura of being
Telling me the real meaning of life
And as I sat dazed hearing it
Tears came up stinging my eyes
Seeing that unmatchable aspect
Paying the price for what I had left

Auspiciously I heard the howl
As the winds whispered the soothing sound
Comforting me thy still have time
To undo the done before the tears mount
Soaring up the rhythm fast
The cadence of my heart beat count

Raised high my head with determination
Heaved eminently my soul
and a smile swept across my face
Enlivening me up from the gloomy haze
As I felt the trust in God rising
The power of belief reviving.....

O God, I thank you for this supreme support
Being always there when I need you the most
May I now follow the path shown
So that your blessings never let me lone
Pursuing the bona fide essence of life 
The real reason for which I am alive
