35. In the forest of my inner light

O King of the cowherds,
O King of the cowherds,
Just once before me appear.
My life is a false dream,
My death is a false dream.
Do take them away.

O King of the cowherds,
O King of the cowherds,
Just once before me appear.
In the forest of my inner light,
In the silent depths of my heart,
I hear the soul-stirring music of your Flute.

I see your divine cow,
Grazing in the lap of Infinity's Silence.
O King of the cowherds,
O King of the cowherds,
Just once before me appear.
Sri Chinmoy, My Flute, Agni Press, 1972
