It is a place of abode to eternity
Everything is vivacious and startling
With the blessing of almighty!
Nature creates its own mystic presence
With its vigor and extensiveness
To make it generous!
Everything resembles with our life and its process
Inspire and embolden to lead the life!
In the end we return to the place
In search of eternal peace!
