Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

The darkness

A blind man in the darkness
The darkness of the night he walks
A journey to his little world
A day's woes to unload
To pray to the god his gratitude
The safety he gives even in night
Though his visibility ever lost
The inner vision ever illumined
The grace of all mighty he knows
Through the hope of health he gives
One more day is to come tomorrow
Which might continue in happiness
The limitation of life he awarded
By the grace of gratitude he receives
A great hope of regaining the vision
Which is lost for ever by birth
Let us pray for him ever for a hope.

    Though blind, he is illumined by inner light! That is why he is able to remain grateful to God! Inspite of his disability, he is hopefully waitng for the break of a new dawn! A poem full of positive energy! (Report) Reply
