The Veil

a poem by Dayanand P K

Unni Krishna Your chubby baby face charms me most
Those dark bright eyes look into my soul
That enigmatic smile of Yours makes me wonder
I know nothing of my lives past
You read me like a book in a flash
I feel ashamed and powerless
For all that I have thought and done
Under the mistaken notion of my Ego
I know Your infinite compassionate nature
You are waiting patiently for me to come
I too long to run into Your arms
But the veil of Maya hides You
You are near and yet far
Only You can remove the veil of Maya
Meanwhile I wait for You like the Gopis
For You are dearer to me than life itself
