Sonnet: Heaven On Earth! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

To hold my little child’s much tender hands;
To watch it’s innocently, sleeping face;
To walk along the sea-shore’s silver-sands;
To kiss my spouse and hug in tight embrace!

To eat the tasty food, my mother serves;
To hear a story told by Grand-mother;
To face one’s life of struggles with strong nerves;
To act per words of wisdom of father.

To say a word of ‘thanks’ to my teacher;
To be a humble servant to master;
To heed to advice good from my preacher;
To thank my God for warding off danger.

Such things on earth make Life, Heaven to me!
Such acts of love make lives blossom truly.
