Thank You My Lord

Updated on June 19, 2013

My Letter to the Lord

What beautiful things,
the good Lord makes,
he doesn't try hard,
just the gives and takes

The sun.. the moon...
the stars above...
deep within our souls,
his undying love

He gives us free will...
to choose... our own way
the fresh air ...we breathe,
when we go out to play

The Lord gives us the flowers..
after the rain...
if you believe in him,
he eases the pain...


Of a loved one passing...
or the lonely times...
of growing old..
and to face changing times

Until I sit... by your side
I will go on with the hope,
that soon we will meet
and I will be...
a thread on your rope

Thank You... My Lord,
for what you have given me
Nothing... could be sweeter
until together we will be.

      It is a beautiful poem and flows well until the penultimate stanza. Still, the message is wonderful. I am also an ardent devotee of expressing gratitude to the Supreme.
