My mind and heart seem to be sealed
All those years struggling to search for love
My perversity has led me to lose connection
Just like the autumn breeze and leaves
I feel adrift roaming in the streets
I see thousand paths but not the one to you
Desperately in need to halt the journey
Teary eyes searching for the last stop
I picked up thorns with my own hands
Turned away from the true love
Left my heart open to receive wounds
What way shall I face you?
My eyes are full of shame and guilt
My heart screaming to reach out to you
All I see is darkness and despair
All the happiness that once existed has vanished
But still this sorrow never leaves me
Are these tears or sparks of embers?
The colour of sorrows seems so deep
That it won’t lighten in centuries
Let the floating water encompass me
Yet there was still remaining life in me
I was again mistaken when you saved me
Out of the thousand destinies visible
I finally discovered the ultimatum
The love and embrace you gave me
Opened your arms to me and told me to seek you
I prostrated and felt all the excruciating agony disappear
My humble request to grant me immediacy
Shower your blessings I am on the verge of falling
Seeking your mercy to experience inner peace
All those desires once in existence, I no longer need
Alas I realise with every pain I suffered
You have endorsed me with thousand respites.
