A Prayer

There are so many who have made a difference to me,
Have added joy to my stay on earth,
Or from who I have learnt invaluable lessons on
Compassion, honesty and courage.
Some of them are gone from this place;
Yet others have moved on from my life.
A great many names forgotten or not even known to me,
Some faces have faded in my mind as well.
A heartfelt prayer today I am sending
To my Krishna:
Bless and forgive each of those whose loving touch
Has made my life beautiful;
For with all their earthly imperfections
Just like I have,
They have dared to love and tried to heal.
Krishna dear, their sincere efforts, accept with love.

Very nice Ayesha!

I too have had such feelings. There are many who have helped us and still helping us, in many diff ways. When I feel gratitude for them this is what I do.

Among all your poems I've read, this has become my favourite.

I liked it very much.

Thanks for sharing!

Yes, knowingly or unknowingly we learn so much from others. Be it good or bad, they do shape our life. This is a wonderful way of expressing gratitude.

Well done ayesha :-)
