Thank You Lord - Poem by Mahalaxmi Naidu
When I am down and cheerless, when I feel terribly unhappy
When I feel lonely, when I feel sad & sometimes gloomy
I am so glad to know that you are always there for me.
When the days simply seems to go wrong & sometimes off beam,
When I keep failing & see success very far, & tears end up to be a stream,
I am so glad to know that you are always there beside me.
When life looks no more beautiful, when music sounds awful,
When friends becomes foe, to make the life more dreadful,
I am so glad to know that you are always there to hear me.
When “love” looses its charm, when “care” looses its meaning,
When sadness becomes life & not ready to free me,
I am so glad to know that you are always there to bear me.
When folks blame me, torment me for doing nothing wrong
When they try to degrade, disgrace & demean me,
I am so glad to know that you are always there to stand for me.
When I, no more can withstand & when am livid with life’s plan,
When I just seem to stumble, stagger, plunge & fall
I am so glad to know that you are always there to hold me.
When I struggle, strive & strain to get the work full done,
For which only horrid spiteful remark is what I get in return
I am so glad to know that you are always there within me.
I thank you from the core of my heart & soul,
For being with me, always, deep within me.
For the unconditional selfless love,
Which you keep bestowing on me.
For the life you gave me & for your endorsement,
For the hope you give me each day, that life is not that dire.
And for everything which you have given to me,
I am thankful to you My Dearest Lord.
