You Have When You Don't Have! - Poem by V.Muthu Manickam

When you don't have money, He guards you against major expenditure
When you don't have vision, He guards you as a sparkle in your soul
When you don't have strength, He guards you against weakness
When you don't have medical care, He comes forward to nurse
When you don't have food, He guards you against starvation
When you don't have wife, He guards you with care like a wife
When you don't have husband, He guards you with care like a husband
When you don't have child, He guards you with affection of a child
When you don't have your father, He guards you like that of a father
When you don't have your mother, He guards you like that of a mother
When you don't have protection, He guards you against every intrusion
When you don't have a friend, He plays with you like that of a friend
When you don't have gratitude, He guards you with a happy attitude
When you have Him at your heart,
Fear not, when you don't have other thing!
For you have (Him) when you don't have (anything) !
