Elih


Two lips a line
Eyes that shine
With hands as small as drops of dew
A little breathe of life so new

His body rests in God's palm
His mind at ease; his mind so calm
I pray that tall walls never wall you
Bureaucrats never hector you
That foul rats never pester you

I pray that you never hear uncensored words
Never witness malicious acts
Never speak words of hate
Never be caught in an unethical debate

May skies sing to you
And trees dance for you
Most of all may God protect you

Welcome to the world Elih
