I Turned To Benevolent God - Poem by shakil ahmed

I Turned to Benevolent God

Shakil Ahmed.
Much has been written about love
Lies and betrayal
But now I feel that
If one is ready to abandon his desire
Surely, he will overcome his despair.

I was eagerly anxious,
To smell the fragrance of love,
To surrender before someone
With all my hopes and aspirations
Very silently in the dead of night.

I pined for a heart
That would swallow my agony and pain
And washed all evils from my body and soul
With its crystalline shower of rain.

Love came with pomp and ceremony
In my small cottage
But soon it faded,
Like late moon of foggy night,
Leaving me in a sorrowful plight.

I turned to benevolent God
To get His care and love.
He loves even the wretched sinners
From the heaven above.

Now I believe from the core of my heart
That upon me God showers His love
And in these moments, I enjoy
A celestial pleasure that comes from above.

I share my happiness and sufferings
With him, without any hesitation.
To lessen my sorrows, I bow down
Before Him with full dedication

I have faith upon His love,
His mercy and blessings
No one is deprived of His
Benediction and backing.

    if we give we get
    so getting love
    is found in giving love
    since we are all brothers
    let's give to each other
    what we want to get

    thanks for that
    heartfelt write!
