Ista Mantra

I want to give You
my breath, my life
My every moment
saturated in the hum of Your song.

How many countless lives
in mosquito droning,
in stream babble,
in fluttering tree leaves
have I been dancing through your creation,
blindly whirling to Your irresistable flute?

For lives as numberless
as the star filled night,
You have been calling me
breathing noiselessly just beyond
the thin veils of this life.

You have been waiting for our eyes
to meet in secret silence,
Waiting for that single instant,
as so many stars
await the rarest spark of life.

Let me sing to You
the secret that joins our hearts
as You have been singing silently
to me through the ages,
This lullaby, this love-song:

That we are One,
