I was lying on a freezing floor, as cold as ice;
I didn’t feel its frigidity;
The pieces of chalk whitened my fingers;
I am not exactly sure what I was thinking;
Except the fact that I was doodling;
All of a sudden, thunder struck my body to wake me up.
I was alone in a dark noisy world;
But then the sound faded away;
As I went, I walked past a beautiful-colored shattered rose;
The memories of the past reflected in front of my eyes right away;
A garden full of spectacular flowers;
Their smell was tasty.
A mansion in the middle of the garden;
That is my Father’s house;
A house of peace and joy;
A house that shines love, decorated by laughter, smells happiness;
And sounds like a charming love song.
The joy I cannot express
And no tears of sorrow but happiness;
I used to be sheltered in a dim dangerous place;
It was inferno;
I was blind, lived in the dark;
I was deaf and I couldn’t speak.
On the day of my salvation;
I felt a small blinking light that shone like a star coming to my rescue;
I got up and followed the light’s direction;
To the place where the light took me.
Things that words can never be able to explain;
Words that poetry cannot be able to describe;
Poetry that songs cannot be able to give musical rhythm;
Songs that tales cannot be able to tell;
Tales that drama cannot be able to play;
Things that rich men cannot be able to offer their spouses to express their love and affection;
Things that a prayer cannot be able to say;
That is what I found, saw and enjoyed.
I know that it was a dream of paradise even though it wasn’t;
I am sure that it was a magic fantasy even if it was not;
I am certain that it was a white light heaven, where a spot of blackish color can never be found, even thought it wasn’t;
I know it was daydreaming and even though it wasn’t, that is exactly how I was feeling.
That very day of my rescue, The Lord of Light showed me a small gesture of his love for us:
He comforted me during unbearable situations;
He wiped away my tears;
He held me into his arms for shelter;
An adoring Parent He is!
So loving and caring, rewarding and rebuking.
His small whispering comforting voice, I heard it during struggle;
His voice, so sweet and gentle;
His voice led me and showed me the path;
It thought me to speak;
It cured my eyes and ears;
His voice took away my fears;
His voice gave me strength to confront temptations.
On the unforgettable day, his voice told me, “Come, I’ll show you a pinch of the new world to come.”
Nobody cries of pain;
No wars or conflicts;
Wild animals are friendly to men;
No street kids;
No orphans or widows;
No guns or bombs;
No hunger or thirst;
In the Otherworld!
