Let my thoughts dower seeds-fertile and bounteous
Let my soul express a devotion-intense and tenacious
Let my actions reflect a faith-resolute and proven
Let my body sheathe a temple-pure and open
Let my words flow like a prayer-tender and healing
Let my heart be the Heaven’s abode-gracious and forgiving
Aye, nowhere else but in me You dwell
Thence solemnly I vow to be well
How would you value love if you have never been heartbroken?
How would you create light if you have never lived downtrodden?
How would you treasure friendship if you have never travelled the path of loneliness?
How would you feel grateful for your food if you have never slept on an empty stomach hopeless?
How would you be thankful for each day unfurled if you have never kissed near-death pain?
How would you make time for the great if you have never paused for life’s mundane?
How would you cherish memories in old days if you have never dared to build them now?
How would you reach the zenith of success if you have never touched the pit of failure slough?
How would you learn if you have never let the strings of your imagination wander?
How, just how, would you believe in the power of dreams if you have never sailed away from the safe harbour a little bolder?
My message to you:
Deal with life as it comes-with grace and courage.
Live. Breathe. Reflect. And take chances.
