A Silent Prayer !

Praying 3

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 !

~ Deepa Nilamani ~

A Blessing !

Sometimes,
So much is,
robbed from us.

Denied,
Suppressed and
Controlled.

That,
We become lost,
Not knowing,
What to do,
Where to go !

But then,
Life can change,
Just overnight.

Just like the,
Seasons of,
Mother earth.

Just like,
Rain,
Ending the drought.
Bringing back,
Mother earth to life.

Human life too,
Bounces back,
As we are,
Part of mother earth.

Life works in,
Mysterious ways,
Suddenly things,
Come back to you.

At a time and ways,
You never thought,
Even more than,
You ever dreamt !!!

Precious and priceless,
Gifts so rare,
In the world,
None can compare.

Never to be,
Held back,
In selfish deeds.
Never to be,
Taken away from you.

But,
To share with,
Others in need.
To mend and,
Heal their broken hearts.

To lift the fallen,
To their feet.
To light their paths,
In every way.

And then,
Leave,
As graciously,
As you came !!!
