Eternity

The night was flowing quietly,
Half-asleep moon was floating up in the sky-
Was that a part of eternity?
Was that a part of endlessness?

Golden flames leaped up like golden roses,
Light and shade were dancing hand in hand-
Innumerable buds of blue-lotus bloomed,
When the ray of sun kissed them as the night dawned.
Was that a part of eternity?
Was that a part of endlessness?

Thousands of birds rose from the trees,
Their wings widespread and strong-
Sunshine was playing happily with them
Was that a part of eternity?
Was that a part of endlessness?

Your warmth enfolded me completely,
I looked deep down into your eyes-
And I saw your red heart there.
I saw a bright red fire burning in your heart-
Since the beginning of time.
Was that a part of eternity?
Was that a part of endlessness?
