I Found 'YOU' Atlast

Swarup Bhattacharya, Poet, Teacher.

Temples! I visited
if I could stand
In front of 'YOU'
but my hope trembled.

I struggled to reach
obscured pilgrimage
if I found 'YOU'
in that niche.

I turned over many pages
to find 'YOU' in scriptures.
But my inward eye
never envisages.

I found all sermons
very dry, prosy.
I wanted to find 'YOU'
more easy.

I was in doubt.
Lost my faith.
My devotional fervor
became drought.

At last, I found 'YOU'
when I was sitting
in a dark corner of my room.
It was my inner view.
