the sanctuary

the sanctuary given by you in the
torrential rainy night of monsoon,
knowingly that i am a soldier of
rival country, applied the medicine
on my multiple wounds, i had seen
the flow of benevolence in your
eyes, my hostility changed the path,
in the morning, allegation raised
by the monastery, they declared you
as traitor, i had looked a divine light
in your innocent face, you accepted
silently the venom bowl, but did not
disclose my hide out, my died ethics
woke up, i surrendered my self before
the mass, i recited-
buddham sharnam gachhami
shangam sharnam gachhami
after that i observed your image
remained in the heart forever -
