An 80 Year old Prayer


-Nima Tharchen

I am most blessed to have come across love before my death
Fortunate to have friendship afore my last breath
The heavens must love me for I found both these two
My Precious, in you

I am well-off in love, pampered I am
I am lucky, Thanks to you mam'
In my past, I must have done many a good deed
Because your love for me has grown like a summer weed

I am most blessed to have seen you before my eternal sleep
Privileged to have a complete glance of you
Not just a slight peep
For these is the memories I have and shall keep
And take with to bed when I sleep

But! Your betrayal is the most fatal of all blows
In a winter when its chilly and it snows
I am here alone and heart broken, God knows
Ask him, and tell him that the world now has no meaning
He can take the few days I have remaining
I want to be wrapped up in you cozy warm embrace
I am miserably dying every day, counting my days
Ask Almighty to give me a quick death
As I want to be with you and kiss you
Tell him I am ready and all set.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
