Live or Leave

Live or Leave

I have to leave.
I have to leave them, who mean the world to me.
The quivering feelings and teary eyes,
The fleeting thought of how to survive!

I see the world swirl around
with the same pace, with the same chase.
Here, the ice palace is melting in bane.

My feelings are steady and wisdom rises.
It’s okay to live or okay to leave.
The karma vibration has to cease.

My call will come. I may hesitate,
But my dearest says, “I will be fine,”
Assures me the rest will be fine.

In the tree of my life, the buds had bloomed
and fragrance had loomed.
This flower did bear the fruits to share.

The work is done.
In peaceful lull my life succumbs.

——-

I may be singing this song after many years. A poet’s compassionate imagination.

    Off course, it has little sad tone, but quality of expressive words are excellent.
    “It’s okay to live or okay to leave.” dilemma is with us all many time.

    Hello Saryuben,
    Hope you and Dilipbhai are doing well. Thanks for the email and remembering me. I do like your poems ( the ones in English are more to my preference) and enjoy reading them. They stir my emotions from deep within, and bring me in touch with my inner self and times of the past.
    Thanks again. Keep up with the beautiful work!
    Kirti.

    Saryuben,

    Very nicely written; especially the stanza “my feelings are steady and wisdom rises ……” – a perfect description of a STHITPRAGNA (I do not know exact word in English to describe this quality – maybe equanimity will be somewhat close) person. It is a very highly philosophical and spiritual poem summarizing realities of life. Thanks for sharing.
