19. Never to meet again

Never to meet again:
My yesterday's face,
My backward race,
Never to meet again.

Never to meet again:
Swift fear the thief,
Wild doubt the chief,
Never to meet again.

Never to meet again:
The clasp of death
And Satan's breath,
Never to meet again.

Never to meet again:
Chinmoy the failure,
Ignorance pure,
Never to meet again.
Sri Chinmoy, My Flute, Agni Press, 1972
