That very one wish

I meditate on
that very ONE,
That very ONE,
yes That very ONE,

Source of light,
that very ONE
That very ONE,
yes that very ONE,

My song's candle's lit
by the One bright
Who lights minds
and hearts of everyone.

Illumined by His
blissful light
darkness of my doubts
is undone.

Glowing scriptures spin
that very ONE
who had the weighty
scriptures spun.

A single iota
of that very ONE,
can raise glory
by a thousand tonne.

"You live in a palace
that is par none
'n' Me, a lame beggar,
dweller of a slum

There's been much ado,
for it to come true,
A wish I ask of you,
A very simple one

Disabled I am,
You know as much;
And a million miles
I have to run.

Lend me your Angels
as my crutch,
So like them I pine
for Your one touch."

Lend me your Angels
as my crutch,
So like them I pine
for Your one touch."

For that one touch,
that very ONE
will light my wish,
I pray as much.

To extinguish my pains
that very ONE
will give me limbs,
I know as much.

ONE as the Lovebug

Art by Simer from Sim creation!

Doesn't matter how long
our shut eyes meditate
and howsoever long
our open minds contemplate

How far we rummage
from place to place;
every holy pilgrimage
just goes to waste!

How far down deep
holy scriptures are dug,
we still fail to be
ONE like the lovebug. (See notes below)

The plain truth remains
the eternal life of spring
that we wish to attain
only true love can bring

God, Guru Gobind Singh's "Jin Prem Kiyo", Simer Kaur

The lovebug is a member of the family of march flies (thats why the reference of Spring). The specialty of the lovebug, because of which it gets its name, is that during and after mating, adult pairs remain coupled, even in flight, for up to several days! In that spring, there are not two, but just ONE! Two bodies one soul.

"Prem" means Love
