After the DARBAR – by Rafiq Sayani

You are my inspiration

You are my aspiration

You are my destiny

You are my satisfaction

You are my ambition

You are my determination

You are my will

You are my articulation

You are my initiation

You are my completion

You are my pinnacle

You are my culmination

You are my submission

You are my elevation

You are my challenge

You are my examination

You are my palpitation

You are my supplication

You are my worship

You are my anticipation
