Vey touching sakhi I came across from Sikhiunleashed..

A Sakhi on Guru Ji's DarshanIn the time of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Jee, there was a Gursikh wholived in a poor little hut. This Gursikh was blind and had a lot ofPyaar for Guru Ji. As he couldn't travel anywhere he would askpeople to go to see Guru Ji and then wait for there return to hear ofGuru Jis well being. He would ask them what does my Guru Ji looklike, How brave is he, what weapons does he keep, what stories doeshe tell, and each would reply "I cannot explain with words."One night he could not sleep, he kept thinking of Guru Ji and howwonderful he was. He longed so much to see the beautiful Mukh ofGuru Maharaaj. He could not take it any longer he felt angered athimself."Guru Ji, I am such a dirty sinner, I am unworthy of your darshan. Ido not know what countless sins I have committed for me to sufferwithout you."At this moment Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji awoke from his Samadhi, hetold some Sikhs to get the horses ready as he had to go somewhereurgently.The blind Gursikh started to cry, he felt angry at himself for beingblind, he tore his hut apart throwing things and cursing himself. Hewanted to kill himself. He wanted too go to see Guru Ji. He ran outof the hut and just ran into the misty dark distance. He tripped andfell , he hurt himself pretty badly. He was bleeding. He started tocry and thought only of Guru Ji."Guru Ji, Guru Ji! Guru Ji! Guru Ji! Guru Ji! Guru Ji!" he criedcontinuously calling out for Guru Ji.Suddenly he felt two strong arms lift him to his feet, and h e heard abeautiful strong voice"I have come, my beloved""Guru Ji, is it really you, but how come you have come"This is what Guru Ji said..."Beloved, I could not sleep without doingyour darshan, I felt your heart pulling me towards you and I couldnot survive"When the Blind Sikh heard this he fell to Guru Jis feet and cried somuch he could not contain himself. Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji againlifted him and said"the home of Guru Nanak Contains everything ask of it what you will"The Sikh replied "Guru Ji all that I ask of is, that my eyes may workso I can do your Darshan"Guru Ji smiled and kissed both of his eyes. When the Sikh opened hiseyes he again fell to Guru Ji's feet on seeing him and could not helphimself and could only cry. He wept at Guru Jis feet and kept doinghis Darshan. He could not even imagined such a beautiful Guru. Hejust kept staring at Guru Ji. Guru Jee then said"beloved I must go now, it is amrit vela and the Sangat will bewaiting" The Sikh begged Guru Ji to stay longer..."Guru ji, I cannot live without your Darshan now, what will I do"Guru Ji Smiled again and said"the house of Guru Nanak again offers what you ask of it, one morething"The Sikh fell to the floor in dandaut, stretched out with armstowards Guru Ji and said "Guru Ji if you are going to give me onemore thing then take these eyes away as I wish not to see anythingever again besides your darshan."A tear dropped down Guru Ji's cheek as he granted the final wish.
