A Silent Prayer !

Pray 5a

She sits in silence,
Praying into the night.
To each and
Everyone around.

Family and friends.
Strangers alike.
She wishes them well,
With all her might.

No one hears.
No one knows.
No one answers,
Back to her !

Her voice,
Reaches up.
To the,
Heavens above.

God is looking
Down upon her.

He hears
He knows
He answers,
Back to her.

That is all
She ever wants !

Wonders of Nature !

Bird 2a

Sometimes I just,
Sit by myself.
Not doing anything but,
Just spending my time.

Gazing up at,
The sky and the clouds.
The birds flying by,
Even aeroplanes !

In the night,
The dark blue sky,
The bright yellow moon,
And the shinning stars !

The beauty of nature.
For us to,

Bring peace,
To the mind,
Joy to the heart.

Do you know,
How fortunate we are ?

As all these
Wonders are,
Blessings from above !

For us to enjoy,
To be happy
In our lives.

To bring peace,
Joy to the world !

Gifted Hands !

Keys 1

Gliding smoothly
Along the keyboard
Keys come alive
From those
Gifted hands !

The melodies
So wondrous,
That reach up
To the skies,
And heavens above !

For the Fairies
Elves and,
The angels
To dance.

T’is said that,
Music is the
Voice of
The soul !

So your soul
Reach up,
To the skies.

To travel
Far and wide,
Across the seas.

To other lands,
Far and near.
For many a soul,
To sing and dance,
And clap their hands !

Fear not child as,
God given gifts,
Are to be cherished.

Not to be
Played around,
Or cast aside.

As in the end
Ti’s not you,
But they
Who will
Bow down !

Thoughts !

Holland 5

Endless thoughts
In my mind
Running fast
Like a fast
Moving train !

The past
Sweeps away
And the
Future is born.

I want to
Move on
Just like,
The train.

As time too,
Is running,
Like the train.

Some of the
Minds are
Not alert.
Not aware,
Of another’s thoughts !

Each one
Runs their own race.

Some are fast
Some are slow !

We each
Are born free souls
To run our race
In our own times.

Why do they not
Understand this ?

~ Deepa Nilamani ~

Empty Words !

Empty 1a

I have no time
Empty words
Useless gossip.

Putting down others
Dragging the past.

Talking behind
Back of others !

I spend my time,
Doing my work.

My own little world
To upgrade myself.
To keep me going
With no harm
To others.

If I do no harm
To no one
Even you,

Why ? Why ?
Do you Not
Let me be ?

All you wanted
Was given to you.
I was all good,
Until you took !

What do you still,
Want from me ?
Flesh and bones
That is left of me ?

No sense of
Good or bad.
No clue
What purity is.

Or else,
You would
Never have,
My, sacred space !

Robbed my things,
To confuse me ?

There will be !

~ Deepa Nilamani ~

Jealousy !

jealousy 1a

You took almost
Every thing away !

And now
Why are you still
Coming behind ?

What I have is
No value to you.

They are not things
Money can buy.

Caring friendships
Grateful hearts.

Are not things
You will ever know.

So you try to
Spoil those too !

Things, that are
Blessed from above

Are Not to be
Played around.

What goes around
Does come around.

What goes up
Also come down.

Harming another
Comes back to you.

The Longer it takes
The harder
The blow !

Don’t you know ?

~Deepa Nilamani~

A Gift !

Healing Hands 1

For all the
Long hours
Of praying.

For all
What I have done
Given and shared.

For all the
I have made.

For all the
Injustice and cruelty
I have tolerated.

For all the
I have borne in silence.

You have heard and
Seen me !

I, do not
See you !
But you are there
Watching me !

What do I say ?
How do I thank ?

A long awaited
Coming through !

I have to
Be patient
This I know.

As there is much
Learning to do.

At times of setbacks and
Let downs in life.
You have come
Giving me strength.

I need to always
Keep this in mind
That Almighty God,
Is taking care of me !
