When I find myself surrounded by utter darkness When everything around me is black and hopeless When every step I take is a drag and I'm spiritless When everything seems to make my world totally restless When the tirades of problems and miseries seem endless When books, words and teachings have become meaningless When time itself has stopped and become listless When the very basis of existence seems pointless
Somehow, somewhere from someplace a voice comes from inside A child, a baby - lost - with cries that are relentless Oh Mother, find me, please take me. Why have you left me out so helpless?
When will you find me? Why are you being so heartless? Does somebody hear me? Is anybody there at all? Am I crying out to a stone who is lifeless?
I am waiting for you. I am yours You may have forsaken me, but I am still your infant nonetheless What's taking you so long? Please come. Don't wait for me to be breathless! This child knows no better It will cry until its last gasp Please show up soon How can I be satisfied with anything less?
