His Gentle Gaze - Poem by Christian Eliab Ratnam

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

In the noon,
when I am at work
His gentle gaze
gives me joy
and strength.

In the night,
when I go to sleep
His gentle gaze
is unto me
a lullaby.

Each day from
dawn to dusk,
Motivates my every task.
