Lord of Fate

Updated on June 1, 2016

Lord of Fate

My heart is devoid of joy and delight.

Lord of fate, kindly state,
what act, of-late, has made you retreat,
happiness away from it.

Though all souls have got,
happiness and merriment,
mine but, has itself to comfort.

Yet again, is sorrow and regret.

I have to put on, a fake suit,
hiding, deep resentment,

Neither the chirps of a soul mate,
nor the fireflies are on flight.

This darkness has only my heart, ignited.

Is this an understatement?
"Last is the attempt,
towards this quest ?"

Lord of fate, kindly state,
what act, of-late, has made you retreat,
happiness away from my heart.

It is devoid of joy and delight.

      I really like this poem, and relate to it so well. It's really pretty, but with a sadness attached. Your poetry is truly original. Love it! :)

      You're back to your brilliant best here. Do not rush; do not compromise with poetry. Especially your style. Watch how I write. I give it all I've got and even then I may still change a word or two.

      So this is a great poem of longing. I like it. You have compromised a little in one or two other poems. Maintain the standard. Meditate and rise early. They will come to you. Much Love, my Brother.

      The song has been sung very well by the Golden voiced K.L.Saigal complementing the beautiful poem.

      You too have translated the essence of this song beautifully, Hari.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Harish for the comments. K.L.Saigal was the first super star of Bollywood whose voice still reverberates.

      Hari, you have written a wonderful poem. I also enjoyed the accompanying song. Late K L Saigal was such a great singer ! It's such a nice stuff that the mind seeks to see again and again. Thank you.
