I looked into his eyes
And met his dreams,
A tender bud yet to fully bloom,
Filled with fragrance;
A soul eager to take a flight
And be a citizen of the heavens unseen;
In the depths I met his being
Waiting to be guided and enlightened.
Where is the guide? I thought
Among the limitless heavens went my mind.
Tired, I came back.
I looked again with concentration
Into the pearls deep,
There I found my face;
I smiled and he smiled too,
The being I was looking for everywhere,
Was there ready to be the guide
Yes, I was the teacher and he my student.
