Prayer - Poem by Kesavan Kavumthara
Oh, my Lord!
Let my friends to live in peace
With their best dreams and desires of life!
Take care of them
When somebody throw stones at them
Making them feel your love and mine!
I am nobody to them, I know
But they are everything to me.
Let them know they will always be
A treasure in my mind kept forever,
Never let them graze in lonliness
Never let them suffer or cry!
Let me go through fires,
Just don’t let them in tears.
Let them be happy to enjoy their life
For ever I knew they are innocent and true.
I am anxious of them and keep a treasure
As much as I treasure you in my heart.
Let me be a breeze when they perspire
Walking a long distance in life.
Let me be a sweet music of heaven
For giving them sleep in nights.
Though prayers are meaningless to them
Let me pray for them....
Though blessings are nonsense to them
Let me bless them ever....
Though they have nothing to share with me
Let me always think of them....
Changing my pains into heavenly songs
Let me sing for them....
For I know still they are helpless there
They are innocent and alone!
If my prayers are wrong and insolent
Be kind to foregive me for all!
Oh, my Lord! I pray again in my pains
Let my friends to live in peace forever
Let my friends, let my friends! ......
