The little light


The little light

In the soft dark night
Up above shining
Heaven's starlit skies
Below flashing, twinkling
Little stars emitting light
Looks so bright, as if
Stars have descended
On the Earth's breast
Awhile to rest and light
They rise and fall
And glide and flit
Signalling left or right
To wayfarer in night
Beautiful creatures
Of Nature guiding us
Through the dark night
By their tiny spark light
Wonder struck, I ask
Sun and Moon, secrets
Of their self-kindling light
Dump may be the night
But little souls venture out
To bright the dark night
Luminous bodies circling around
Seeing them, children jump
Dance, run and for a moment
Forget the world around
They are fireflies in the night
Starring the sky
And roaming the ground,
Carrying the light in their wings
None could find out the secret of light
Like can we expound the skies?
And for the secret of little light
Forever the riddle lies……
Wish I were blessed
With the infinite little light
So that I could illume the path
Be it gloomy or shiny
Our path remains ever lighted
With the heavenly little light......
