The Lion and The Little Girl!

AAA 1

She walked with him
On his morning walks.
He was talking of the
Sky, the sun and the clouds.

But she was looking
For sticks and stones,
And running behind,
The baby calves!

Looking for fruits and
Flowers of wild.
Filling her pockets
To the brim.

She had her own questions
All of her own,
Which he patiently
Explained to her.

Why is that and why is this?
How is that and how is this?
Maybe childish but always kind
Full of love and tenderness.

Long time since,
He is no more,
A place I really
Like to go back.

With happy and
Sweet memories
Of care free,
Childhood days.

Birth and death,
Is the cycle of life.
We all fall under it
When we are born.

Although,
You left me long ago,
Your spirit has been,
Always around.

It has been,
A very difficult path.
If not for you,
Would not have survived.

My guiding light,
From birth to death,
Even before and beyond,
Life goes on, on and on.

So many doubtful,
Eyes upon me.
You have given back,
My dignity.

I am so thankful
For your gift.
That will help,
So many many more.

I am most blessed,
To have been
Born to you.

With utmost gratitude,
And,
Deep respect,
I worship you!

In quiet slumber

Into a peaceful rest,

Filing it with,
Beautiful dreams!

Awaken you
Refreshed.

New aspirations.

New day,
A new beginning.

With new hopes

Full of Joy!

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.

Where,
God is looking
Down upon her.

He hears
He knows
He answers,
Back to her.

And,
That is all
She ever wants !

The Powers Above!

The Universe 1

Some may think that,
That powers above,

Are untrue
Are mistaken,
Ever more.

We are,
Just mortals,
Down below.

Who are we ?
To judge,
The powers above !!!

They watch over you,
Through,
Day and Night.

Whispers child,
That’s not right !

If I have,
No time to pray,

Child,
Holier are,
The hands that help.

I ask not for,
Fancy things.
Those that,
We leave behind.

Guidance,
Every step of the way,
All I ask you,
Everyday.

Challenges came,
One by one.
Sometimes,
I would fall and cry !

Silently,
They watched over me
Tossing and turning,
In the stormy sea.

Tests and trials,
Hard work it was.
Sometimes I thought,
I would fall down.

When it was hard,
I cried out,
This is,
Too much for me !

When is it,
Going to end,
Tell me !

Its always,
The darkest,
Just before dawn.

True to the words,
Morning was born.

Bright as ever,
The sun came up,
Chasing,
The darkness,
Away from the light.

A new day,
A new life,
To Begin again.

With Deep Gratitude and,
Thankfulness,
I bow down to you !
