Poem: My Polar Star May 9, 2007Posted by Arun Rajagopal in Conversations.
Tagore wrote this poem for me decades ago. But I discovered it this morning.
My Polar Star
I have made You the polar star of my existence; never again can I lose my way in the voyage of life.
Wherever I go, You are always there to shower your benefience all around me.
Your face is ever present before my mind’s eyes.
If I lose sight of You even for a moment, I almost lose my mind.
Whenever my heart is about to go astray, just a glance of You makes it feel ashamed of itself.
