Thoughts are quiet
sounds are muted
the air carries my silence
the soul a symphony
of harmony

I am alone and at peace
at long last the clouds
have shed and the sun
shines bright in the sky
I feel the warmth on my skin

When I see you next I
will be calmer, stiller.
No more restless soul
to taunt you.
No menacing thoughts
to accuse you.

This distance is our solace
the calm of the water
between two lands torn apart
the peace of our nations
with borders at rest
souls at harmony

I wonder what it is
that goes on in your nation
yet for harmony I
try not to ponder

Until our worlds collide
again, old friend
I shall keep this
candle of harmony
alight.

-Khushbo
