D-engue, a sickness that made me sick
for 2 child of mine tasted its painful stick
sipping me lot of sleepless night as I fight
nightmare of losing any of them upon my sight.
Entwined with a prayerful heart, I seek
God's mercy while kneeling as I speak
words of prayer for God to share its light
of healing to lift my children of their plight.
Never these medicine could heal their sickness
If You won't share thy healing grace and holiness
I said to the Lord as I seek His mercy out of sight
to help my children to arise and see the morning's light
God heard my prayers for just after a few days
My children are already out of danger's face
so the doctor allowed us to be discharged
from a week confinement at the hospital's charge.
Until now my children are still recovering
from this stupid mosquitoes bite and sting
that can put anyone's life into danger's den
if no necessary precautions be undertaken.
Empowered awareness is really needed to keep
clean and healthy surrounding can help to keep
away dengue mosquitoes haven as we sleep
and can prevent them joining in our life's ship.
