Thank You


The feeling has no name
And yet saying, thank you,
Express a bit of it.
I am, and will forever be grateful
Yet all I can say is,
Thank you.

Noble was the deed, and relieved was me,
The victim.
It’s just a deed in my struggle, just a hand,
But without it, other hands would mean
Nothing.

Madam! Yes I call you.
Whatever made you do it,
I may not know, but can guess.
And is what I would teach myself every other day,
That I shall have a chance of living.
Yes I will try everyday.

You have directed me to future’s home,
Yes, I will go
And here I say,
When am there, you will be grateful,
Isn’t it?
Am talking too much, I know.
But saying thank you would and will never repay your deed.
All I can say, humanly is
Thank you again,
God will guide your steps.
I know it’s late, but now is the best time.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
