While You Were Sleeping

The world is in utter chaos. Everyone is playing their own game. They feel they are here to stay and their rule is permanent. They win and lose subjects, and then they lose them all. Still the mind chess is on and the world burns itself. Many win and capture, like the singing bird, in cage the bird forgets its song. Some are noisy, some are sitting quietly in a corner. And they get afraid and run around in circles. Some talk of courage and bravery but their minds are crippled by congenital doubts. You watch and enjoy this world play. The likes of us who forget You, become a part of this madness. For us there is nothing in this world but You:

ਰੇ ਜਿਹਬਾ ਕਰਉ ਸਤ ਖੰਡ ॥
O my tongue, I will cut you into a hundred pieces,
ਜਾਮਿ ਨ ਉਚਰਸਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ॥੧॥
if you do not chant the Name of the Lord. ||1||
