My world became dark and silent
by Sudipta Bhattacharyya
Like the dreary and gloomy desert.
Only sands of sorrows frowned
At me each and every moment.
There was no candle left to enlighten
My heart even in Christmas times.
I had been spending sleepless nights
With my heavy heart pillowing upon thorns.
I was extremely searching my Lord,
Who always gives me strength, soothe my
Deep rooted sorrows & loneliness.
Suddenly I found my comfort upon my
Mother's affectionate lap that used to cradle
Me in my early days of life.......
I discovered my Lord in my mother's
Ever soothing lap to be comforted.
