A Drop Of Water

I've been waiting here for the drop of a water

The drop of a water on the green leaf

I don't know how it is still there

Im just waiting like a thief.

I've waited for years before

The time when hope was strong

Never too alarmed by the intensity

Of my thirst that things can go wrong.

Since then it has been a long run

And innumerable things that i learn

All these years i've lived in the oasis

To explore the desert is the way to earn.

The torrid sands are yet to burn my feet

My body, my mind and my soul to defeat

Still i no more feel the thirst

Which once used to come out burst

Nor i seek the rain to come

That neither cares the winter nor the autumn

Only it cares the promise it makes

To drench the soil with love whatever it takes

But the sands are too cruel

Conspiring with the sun,

Never lets the clouds to bless,

Evil remains so stern.

So i've passaged a long way around

Never knowing what to seek

And now i see the drop there

Coming down rolling off green peak

The thirst doesn't bother anymore,

The drop only soothes my soul

The doubts of reality no more torments,

Do not care whether a mirage or a ghoul,

The only thing i want to do is

To stare at the beautiful bead,

To pray to god to keep it safe

In the conciousness of my head.
