A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

A Call for Faith


What have I lost
I wonder…
And look inward.

Only my heart:
for it lies with you.

Only my soul:
for it’s lost, in wilderness
abandoned by my searching self.

Only my voice:
the unspoken words
the unfelt plea
At a loss to articulate.


Why can’t I even
find the words
to pray?

I’m thankful , though,
I still have You
Dear God,
Waiting for me…

  1. well..very nice…i envy poets like u jus coz i’m not very good at poetry : )


  2. An utterly romantic poem given such a divine dimension at the last stanza by connecting the soul to the God.It is a lesson for all ,how simple and yet effectively expressive a poem can be.Wonderful.That is what another person used to do very artistically ,again n again.If i am not mistaken ,He was R.N.Tagore!


  3. Only my soul:for it’s lost, in wildernessabandoned by my searching self.This verse caught me totally, as well as the divine colour you paint it in! Lovely Teacher! 🙂


  4. “the unspoken wordsthe unfelt pleaAt a loss to articulate.Lost.Myself.”How well I relate with this! I’m sure all of us, at some point would have been thru it.At a time when hopelessness seems to take control, the last verse, very simple yet powerful, flashes the light!!!I’m thankful , though,I still have YouDear God,Waiting for me…And what more could one ask for???!!!A lesson for life, this:):)


  5. relate *to*-sorry:P
