Christian Eliab Ratnam Poems

Through the mist of my heart,
I heard a voice,
A sweet, melodious voice
That affirmed the words

My love for you,
How rich in depth?
For joy to cherish,
For peace to restore,

If love could be another word,
If love always is true,
If love’s all the world’s about,
Then Honey, love is you.

Love what a wonderful feeling,
Love that has no beginning,
Love a well filled with petals,
Love that blossoms, swells and settles.

In the morning,
when I get up
His gentle gaze
gives me the

In His gentle arms,
All worries gone.
In His cosy arms,
All joy is born.

You are a wonderful friend,
A great companion too.
Sometimes a tiring journey wears a person out,
Strangely all that changes when I am around you.

Under the debris, I hear a boy crying.
Under the mud, I hear a mother screaming.
Under water, I see a father struggling.
Under grief, I hear a girl lamenting.

On an island faraway,
My soul I left to run astray.
I was stranded in a prison,
Until I was released into freedom.


Dreams, oh the pleasure,
Of glorious companion,
Assist me in my search for treasure,
While I journey in sleep's convention.

My soul seeks for compassion,
My being for mercy yearns,
I have sinned, I have sinned,
I have sinned against my God.

A meaningful conversation,
She told me all I knew.
From my childhood dreams and fantasies,
To all of which I had no clue.

A giant step to me it seemed,
Though not even a step to Him.
A painful effort to me it seemed,
A needless effort to Him.

I acknowledged the Lord,
In all my ways.
Awaiting His permission each step.
His divine mercy and infinite grace,

In a wooden nest lies a body.
A body lies lifelessly there.
A bag of bones.
A memoir on woes.

I ran for parties,
I rushed for trials.
I mingled with the rich,
I crowded with the weighty.

Her face is but a lifetime's joy,
Her lips will the flowers employ.
Her eyes a melange of sky and sea,
Her smile is but a melodious plea.

I looked into her eyes,
She looked into mine.
While the beats of her heart,
Was converted into love by mine.

From my heart’s eye
Came tears too heavy,
For human hands to carry.
Falling and calling,

Inside I know it's selfishness,
I think you know it too.
Yet I know the only solution,
The very feelings I have for you.

The Best Poem Of Christian Eliab Ratnam

The Voice Of My Saviour

Through the mist of my heart,
I heard a voice,
A sweet, melodious voice
That affirmed the words
Of my long awaited joy.

And through that mist,
A song I heard
That made my tear drops sweet.
A wonderful song that filled my heart,
With the expiation of my guilt.

That mist of sin,
My soul foretold
With repugnance deep within.
That song of peace that voice restored
Amidst a heart of hatred and discord.

That ineffable voice,
My state made known,
That ineluctable state I was in,
Until I inclined my heart unto that voice
That purged my heart of sin.

That voice of old,
Which cleansed my heart,
Is still ringing in my ear.
The voice of my Saviour which said “I love you! ”,
Will stay within me forever.

Christian - a noble effort, especially the 'gentle gaze'. But let me get in before the ungodfearing poets on this site (poets are by profession loving cynics) get at you -faith, in itself, doesn't make generally acceptable poetry. But seen acting in your own experience, (especially in love and loving actions) , it can be turned into wonderful, widely appreciated, immortal poetry...keep the observation of faith acting and the expressions of faith separate, and you will meet the world on common ground. There is a place for the poetry of faith - but not I fear on a website like this. The 75% of US readers of and contributors to this site have often or have often had, unpleasant experiences of fundamentalism as children or adults... I hope this makes sense to you. And very best wishes in the combining of faith and poetry! Michael
