Mother’s Eyes, by Paramhansa Yogananda

I sought those two black eyes everywhere.
When my teacher or my brother rebuked me or were unkind,
I sought help every day in the sweetness of those two black eyes.
In the harbor of those two black eyes, I sought refuge.
She died. I cried, and I sought in the stars,
In the darkness of the night for those two black eyes,
But I found them not.

Many other black eyes shone upon my childhood.
But they were not those two black eyes which I had loved.
In the stillness of the forest and the darkness of the night
I used to watch under the stars,
Watching in the darkness,
Looking for those two angelic,
Unapproachable black eyes,
But I found them not.

Now that my mind is awakened, I see
Those two black eyes everywhere.
In the eyes of the Divine Mother
I have found my own mother.
In the love of the Divine Mother
I have found my mother’s love.
