Towards Immortality

a poem by Nivedita R Nair

Showers of love on me,
wet me to shiver with joy,
at a time to sit and cry,
missing the soul I longed for,
in the wilderness of life I lived.

Child like, I clung on him,
home I made of his heart,
eating meals prepared by his soul,
to nourish my body and soul alike,
to get stronger than before,
aiming to walk fast towards immortality,
never to return to world as a mortal any more.
