Introspection Unconditional love

बस यूँही…..

Familiarity breeds contempt , as is said. Repeated exposure to painful situations numbs the perception of pain.
I was reminded of this brief poem I had read a few months ago on the web.
The Angel

I dreamt a dream! What can it mean?
And that I was a maiden Queen
Guarded by an Angel mild:
Witless woe was ne’er beguiled!
And I wept both night and day,
And he wiped my tears away;
And I wept both day and night,
And hid from him my heart’s delight.
So he took his wings, and fled;
Then the morn blushed rosy red.
I dried my tears, and armed my fears
With ten-thousand shields and spears.
Soon my Angel came again;
I was armed, he came in vain;
For the time of youth was fled,
And grey hairs were on my head.
William Blake

Very nice and meaningful poem.
Right analysis and statement, repeated exposure numbs the perception. All of us have experienced the phenomenon. It maybe compared with, when drops of water fall on the ground, the water is visible, but with time though it is not visible any more, it is not gone but is still there under the surface of the ground.

कभी मुस्कान के पीछे दिल का दर्द भी समझा करो,
कभी खुले नैन के पीछे अश्रु का सैलाब भी देखा करो,
जमाना तो जालिम है,कभी आप तो हमे अपनाया करो,
ना कोई हसरत,ना कोई दर्द,बस पलकों में हमे समाया करो….

Great Poet Blake.. Explained pain in such a beautiful words…Photograph as usual very appropriate….Sirji,,🙏
मनाप्रमाणे जगावयाचे किती किती छान बेत होते.
कुठेतरी मी उभाच होतो,कुठेतरी दैव नेत होते…

दर्द सा वफ़ादार कोई नही।
सब साथ छोड़ दे, कम्भख्त ये नही छोड़ता।
