A Promise To God - Poem by ramesh rai

The sun made a promise to God
to come everyday in the morning
and disburse all the rays
gifted by God
to all the creatures
and go back to his home
by every dusk

The sun is performing his job
all along
he never cares for rain and thunder
every day he comes and
complete his job
performing his job
million years passed
but he never asked
for a reward by God.

    Hi,
    The sun made a promise to God
    He never asked for a reward
    From the God
    For the duties he offered!
