For You

a poem by

Devika

I have no grief, no joy unshared,
no complaint, no tear to shed:
For You walk beside me.
I have but thoughts of You alone
and a longing just for You:
And that resides in me.
The lamp is placed before the Wind,
which shelters it Itself:
For You preside me.
I care not if no other comes
at my behest or call:
Since You guide me.
A single drop of tear is price
I paid for all this joy:
For You live inside me…
