The Drop of Warmth

The tears I have shed for you, Son,
Have treasured me making second to none
By being a bundle par symbolic of virtue,
Charm, simplicity, love, care as you do
Besides being a son in crown
To our virtuous world of our own
You never failed me shedding tears so sacred
Every time, whatever, however occurred;
Be it in your success or failure, win or loss
Joy or sorrow simply flowed out, nonetheless.
Today on your BD albeit smiles it invites
I shed more of tears from here to my respite
And feel proud of every single drop I shed
For you my son, because, they are worthy
I see the light, emanating from your crown
My enthroned prince, make you shine
While brightening up your realm
Besides, appends a glitter to my drop!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
