My Polar Star by Rabindranath Tagore

Something a little spiritual for today’s poem.

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 lost my mind.

Whenever my heart is about to go astray, just
a glance of You makes it feel ashamed of itself.

~~ Rabindranath Tagore
