Ocean of the Heart
In the ocean of my heart
arise the waves of my Master’s grace.
In it appear whirlpools, in it blows fierce gales
of countless thoughts and arguments
that hamper my contemplation of the Lord.
I am in an alien land, where I find no support.
To add to my woes,
I have fallen in love!
My lack of maturity, my inexperience,
aggravate my plight, and yet -
ever since I tasted love, O Bahu,
I have lost all taste
for worldly play and merry-making….
Unity is written on the tablet of your heart -
you should continue studying that tablet for eternity.
You only have to remember the one Word of God -
and keep practising that one Word.
Those who enshrine the Lord in their hearts, O Bahu,
have both worlds at their command….
Between you and me, my Lord,
surges the ocean of love….
I beg for your Name - to sail across to you.
