A Child's Supplication!


O Maker of this universe! ! ! ! !
Sought in silence, prose and verse!

Teach me Lord to sing Thy Praise
On strings of these my humble lays

O Knower of all black and white
Pour on us Thy heaven's light

Thou knowst our deep folds and layers
Unto Thee I send my prayers

Bless the sick with healthy life
Help the ones who are in strife

Grow us strong to serve the nation
with progress, peace and education

Ignorance sweeps us with its might
Help us remove it by our light

Leave us not our Gracious God
Save us from all evils odd

Grace our minds with blessings Thine
We wish to stay forever Thine

Desert us not, O worthy Lord
The path is thorny and so broad

Our hands are seeking for Thy mercy
Bless us withThy boundless mercy

Bless my parents and my teachers
Friends and siblings, all Thy creatures!

Ameen! ! !

    Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my poems. I too have enjoyed yours.
    I truly enjoyed - A Child’s Supplication! The flow is so exact and pleasurable even musical. May I make a suggestion? There is only one ‘e’ in amen. The third stanza could read - Pour upon us heavenly light –
    Only to keep the meter flowing. I liked the way you used a capital letter for the word Knower. As you see the teacher in me can’t be hidden.
