Favorite Quote:
Those who joyfully leave everything in God's hand eventually find God's hand in everything.

In crowd and in vacuum, in summer and in blooms,
In solo presence, in hazy effervescence there is just one face which booms,
I just see a face and nothing else,
People say I'm struck by a mania,
How do I make nerdy heads understand the meaning of nostalgia?

Though alone, my hand finds itself clasped with hers,
Living without her is just a curse,
Breathing in present, I live in the past,
How do I make loveless hearts understand the meaning of nostalgia?

In the world of love, it’s just me and her with everything else frost,
Not I in the world, but the world within me is lost.
Nothing is dark, when she is around there's a radiant euphoria,
How do I make the blind world understand the meaning of nostalgia?

The author's comments:
A poem on nostalgia. The protagonist is away from his beloved and when he sees things, places around he is reminded of the time he had spent with her there. He's lost in her thoughts, in the memories with her and hence he repeatedly says "How do I make people understand the meaning of nostalgia?"
