Christmas to Easter


Today is the Christmas
Thinking of my birth
Thank you for bringing me into this world
Thank you for giving most responsible parents
Thank you for giving us nice teachers
Thank you for giving good friends
Thank you for giving understandable spouse
Thank you for giving knowledgeable kids
Thank you for giving good livelihood

Life is moving
Born with empty hands
Crawled on the ground
Learn to walk
Started running in the life
Don’t know where to stop

Enjoyed the Christmas days
Enjoyed the new years
Half of the life passed away

Started seeing other side of the coin
Parents are in old age
Grand parents passed away
Teachers passed away
Friends passed away

Health is deteriorating
Whatever you given
They are all going away
Seen the peak in the life
I can’t stay on top always
It is time to travel downhill

Slaves became the masters
Masters became the beggars
I trust in your word that
The stone rejected
Become the cornerstone

Seen the uphill
Seen the downhill
I can’t walk any more
Started crawling again

Thinking of you all the time
We seen the Good Friday
Experiencing the same pain
Mother undergone the pain
To deliver the baby
It is the pain of body
To deliver the soul to you

We celebrated Easter
Reminding us that
There is life after death

Celebrated the Christmas
Celebrated the Easter
You came for us
You died for us
What you enjoyed
During your days

Give me dropp of your unselfishness
We are humans
Help us to bare this pain
Give us your loving heart
Help us to serve your people
That is what you asked for

If we are lucky
We may see your birth again
If not you will see
Our soul one day

Doing my best
To fulfill your word
Keep this soul with you
When this body lay down on earth

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
