Dear John - Poem by Raken Marimuthu

You made today a pleasant good day for me.
Thank you for the time you took to be with me
Your heart is seen in the form of colorful rainbows
They reflect good thoughts that you have sowed
Every sprout of life is the result of sowed thoughts
Expressing as beautiful roses even in dire droughts
Our inner Self and the subtle hearts is life's fountain
Sprinkling blessings of your choice like life's lantern
Joy of such deed is credited into accounts of life
That gives us the moral strength in moments of strife
For when our conscience is clear like the crystals
We can kneel down to the Lord with pride like angels
That makes our life meaningful and wonderful
Our sojourn to this world really becomes beautiful
It takes nothing to be a little kind and a bit human
A penny for the poor, a thank you for your yeomen
A crump for those in hunger and a little love for all
To save us from the worldly vices that brings our fall
Dear John, you are a twinkling star in my life's mission
Your kind compliments after 35 years was nice to listen
These simple things are lubricants to cracking ladders
Thousands have walked up to become life's leaders
John you are blessed for you know the life's goals
Wish you all the best in the enrichment of your soul

Dedicated to my student John who met me after 35 years
