Forever Oneness by Bee Lake


Glare by Lovell D'souza




                                          Forever Oneness,

                                    Who sings to us in silence.

                             Who teaches us through each other ,

                       Guide my steps with strength and wisdom.

                                May I see the lessons as I walk,

                                Honour the purpose of all things.

                                    Help me touch with respect,

                            Always speak from behind my eyes.

                                   Let me observe not judge.

                                       May I cause no harm,

                       And leave music and beauty after my visit.

                                      When I return to Forever

                                      May the circle be closed

                                     And the spiral be broader.”
