Sitting here,
Right now – this very moment –
Many people come to my mind…

Some of them are far, far away…
And, some are not so far;
Some are alive,
And, some are no more.

I am in touch with 
The kind of feelings
My heart experiences
Whenever my mind stops at
Each of these persons.
I feel extremely happy, 
Elated, privileged and secure
When I think of some;
And, when I think of some other,
I feel sad, angry, 
Betrayed and extremely insecure.
My mind swings like a seesaw …
Sometimes, I am on ‘Cloud Nine’ - 
Very up-beat…
And, sometimes, in doldrums - 
Very, very down.

I am not a rock…
I am a human with a heart.
My heart needs care, 
Reassurances of love…
It longs to find an anchor, 
Time and time again.
I need some good souls in my life
To tell me with all their heart –
That I am a fine soul…
That they accept me
With all my mortal flaws.
I need some good souls 
In my life
To whom I can say,
Even in the dread of the night…
“Dear, I feel good about myself
Just when I think of you…
I feel very, very secure!”
And, I do need some souls 
In my life
Who can say the same to me.

Where does my sense of
Happiness and security come from?

“I can do all alone,”…
This sounds like a valiant cry…
But, it is not; it’s certainly not.
I can not do it alone…
I need you – my ‘Soul mate’…
You need me 
To feel and say the same. 

Eden Garden might have been
The most exquisite
And secure place
On this Earth…
But, even God, Jehovah, 
Had realized
That He couldn’t make 
Adam live there,
All alone!
