Paradise

Miles and miles I walked

In search of the holy one

Who made you and me

But could be seen by none

 

With a disappointed heart and fragile attempts

I lost my hope, I gave up my hunts

Consoling my disturbed soul, I looked up at the sky

Watching the snow balls roam and cry

 

The serenity of the night from the grace of Adam

Comes across Eve and the garden of Eden

I was gawking down at the flowers smiling

The moon's bright white light shining

On the most beautiful, eternal place

 

I stared at the lady bugs on the green grass blades

It could be seen everywhere, the beauty he has made

Squirrels digging deep and their tails brooming the ground

And butterfly wings in a merry-go-round

 

And then it burst , upon me the truth so pure

To my incomplete spirit, the heavenly cure

For all the legends and myths I blocked

Every temple-church gates I knocked

 

Beneath every horizon, in the very pages of books

And in every desert and every snow hooks

The secret was there, simple and sweet

 

Oh! I sigh with regret

Why in my life couldn't I get?

 

Now in my coffin do I realize

That in me was my Lord, and the earth was my paradise
