Gitanjali

Life of my life, I shall ever try to keep my body pure,
knowing that thy living touch is upon all my limbs.

I shall ever try to keep all untruths out from my thoughts,
knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled the light of the reason in my mind.

I shall ever try to drive all evils away from my heart and keep my love in flower,
knowing that thou hast thy seat in the inmost shrine of my heart.

And it shall be my endeavor to reveal thee in my actions,
knowing it is thy power gives me strength to act.

Is it from the Gitanjali of Gurudev or an original by you? Have not read the work by Gurudev but this one again connects... I am not very sure what made you to bring forth these thoughts but these are important sentiments... Njoy living Gal... :)

Tagore- the ultimate poet.

I first thought you had written it originally. Loved it a lot.
