Sonnet: My Father- A Noble Soul! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Oh, what a lovely father, we have had!
He raised a family of children ten
In honest ways, God-fearing, never sad,
And put each one on road towards Heaven.

He kissed the sacred ground while entering church;
He taught his pupils scholarly and well;
Of social justice, his mind was in search;
He prayed by heart so fervently, I tell.

He left us education as our wealth;
He spoke to God in silence every night;
His earnings went to keep us in good health;
The world was wrong but he was always right!

Eternal Light shines on his soul today!
The noble path he trod is now our way.
