The Lion and The Little Girl!


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.

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,
Deep respect,
I worship you!

As You Sleep!

Beautiful 10

As you sleep
In quiet slumber
May you receive
Blessings sent your way!

Lulling your mind
Into a peaceful rest,
Filing it with,
Beautiful dreams!

Awaken you
New aspirations.

To a
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.

God is looking
Down upon her.

He hears
He knows
He answers,
Back to her.

That is all
She ever wants !
