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
