Of dreams and reality
Why do we long to surrender
Everything to our creator
Because we know within
We were always a part of Her.
We are tiny flames longing
To burn together with eternal flame
We are little brooks rushing forth
Longing, heading to the river.
There is no pain or heartbreak
No running away from life
No agony, no despair
It’s just the longing to surrender.
To give ourselves to our creator
Who has been with us through all
Every joy, pleasure and tear
How can we not yearn for Her?
