Thirteen Teardrops

//Thirteen Teardrops// was written while Sri Chinmoy was flying from Trinidad to Jamaica on British West Indies Airways, on 26 April 1971.


My Lord is gone, my world is gone.
Him my bleeding breath never shall see.
My Love is gone, my Goal is gone.
In me now grows a venom-tree.
Sri Chinmoy, The seeker's universe, Sri Chinmoy Centre, Jamaica, West Indies, 1971
