Lost and Found

image source: google images

Life you threw me all askew
In despair I travelled trudging on
Ignorant of  jewels yet to be born
Of experiences wonderful and new
I lost it all, those material things
I thought that I had lost my soul
Then Lord you held me, made me whole
And Your flute, it brought me joy and wings

  5. "Ignorant of jewels yet to be born"

    That's a lovely line, Suzy. Really we don't know what's all in store for us and we fall into the trap of despair so soon. Thanks for this uplifting poem.

    1. Thanks Beloo. Yes we despair so easily when with a little bit of patience and faith we find that the future is after all nothing to despair about.

  19. Then Lord you held me, made me whole
    And Your flute, it brought me joy and wings

    The Lord's flute not only mesmerizes the gaus(cows) but humans too. Devotion flows through the holes of the instrument.One loses oneself in the melody to find eternal love and peace.

    1. So true Kalpana. The flute is so mesmerising that one truly loses oneself in its melody.
