#A Wish that couln't be granted...


Joyous and ecstatic,
On the banks of
Mother Ganges,
I didn’t want to look
Over my shoulder,
And wished time
Could stand still,

And with the imprint
Of that moment,
I could just die…
But that is not in
The scheme of things…

For I knew better,
Pain waited in the aisle
With a benign smile…

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
