Thank You


My beloved friends, seeing you so cautious anxious waiting for unseen but foreseen disasters coming soon
Breaks my heart asunder into million sharp darts but I can only have myself to blame
Oh, all my beloved poets, drink here all the sincere and contrite love my heart can now offer
I wished I could take back the times and tides to shower you with love instead of apprehension
May tomorrow bring us brighter more hopeful days in which we look for sun instead of thundering rain
May my mind be controlled by my heart in most positive, courteous, serious, respectful, joyful but not playful manners
May I think thrice before putting words on my laptop computer
No more late night chat, no more romance, for I will love everyone equally with fraternal love
Pure, simple, humble, caring, pure-loving, which I ought to do that long ago
But it is not too late for many tears have now washed my heart and soul clean
May the Lord God grant me a permanent marks of humility and modesty
In speech, in gesture, in glance, in deed, in thought, in all
That I can enhance my own soul, all around me in the Divine Spirit and in noble spirit of poetry

Thank You, the Spirit of Love
Thou have come and made dwelling in my soul
I adore Thee.

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
