Tell Me, How Do I Pray For You? - Poem by indira babbellapati

I know not how to pray
How do I pray for you?
I know not how to make a wish for you
How and what can I wish for you
Standing alone in the presence
Of the one who gives what's
Our due whether asked or not
I closed my eyes trying to
Absorb
I opened my eyes trying to
Get absorbed
Is that a prayer?
Is that making a wish?
Tell me, what do I pray for you,
Tell me, what do I wish for you,
When in the process of
Absorbing and getting absorbed
I absorbed you unto me?

    Prayer is the master key. We all need each other spiritually and physically. Just say something good on my behalf. That's prayer. Nice poem. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
