Two friends beside me!
Walking with me through life!
Walking hand in hand!
Through mountains and deserts
Valleys and streams
Through joy and sorrow
Though gain and loss
The values of life, universe and everything!
Sometimes one or the other moves away
Only to show me, my own folly!
Only to gently nudge me back!
Oh Wisdom ! my great friend!
You are the shining sun in the sky of understanding !
I thank thee! For teaching me!
For him who has inner vision and insight!
The mind is but a slave !
And all worldly pleasures are worthless pursuits
Self is realized through selflessness!
And love is the greatest virtue!
Oh wisdom! I bow down before you!
Oh Death! My great friend!
Though dark and deceitful !
You no longer scare me!
You move so close to me everyday!
Like rain drops that will ultimately reach the sea
One day we will become one!
How vicious you are in snatching away loved ones
Yet some how you have let me be!
I keep laughing at you for this
And yet you teach me humility !
Oh dear friend!
How much longer must we play this game of life!
Wisdom and Death! Two great friends beside me!
Walking with me for life
The values of life universe and everything !
Oh Great friends! I thank thee !
