illusion


Illusion
- - - - - - -
Almost I could see;
A Heaven from Hell
Blue sky from pain
And a smile from veil
Almost within my reach
Could have touched
Could have felt
Might have chanced
That brightness
That glint and flash
From a sapphire sun
That dazzled and stunned
Sauntered through my way
It looked like a dream
Sauntered as soft away
Walking along the lone path
I saw the infinite light
So brilliant and rare coming my way
I could have caught it
But it ran away
Only to be seen
Merged with God
Almost within a twinkling of an eye away.......
