I exist because you do -Harekrishna

I exist because you do
They say, you are not any more
but they do not see me, know me
and hence they do not know
that
I exist because you do

Yes, they saw me burn you
so that is what they think
but burn what, did I?
It was not definitely you.

Yes, a name ceases to exist,
perhaps a body too.
But your thoughts and your light,
still guides me.
Is that thought not you?
Is that light not you?
How can it be not you?
Since
I exist because you do.

There is more to this
than I can say
There is more to this
than I can see
There is more to this
than I can feel
Presently, it suffices to say
just this:
नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि नैनं दहति पावकः .
न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः |
-Bhagvat Gita (2.23)

So,
I exist because you do.
-Harekrishna
