A journey of light is calling me
I can see your golden light glowing
Soft, pure, beautiful, calm, serene
Slowly I can see the light unveiling.
As if some golden goddess
Who was sleeping is waking up,
Her divine beauty built of light
Is slowly coming into being.
As if a golden lotus of light
Blooming petal by petal
Right in front of my eyes
And my world is lighting up.
Never knew there was so much light
In this everyday life and world
Till you touched my eyes and heart
With your loving fingers of light.
