prayer beads

Posted on Updated on

dearest Divine
help us, guide us, bless us
in your ever flowing love
in your eternal light
may what we do
only brings us closer to you

now that you have brought us this far
hold our hand and show us the way
clear our path to you
please don’t lead us astray

help us realize our gift
fuel our inner flame
with your holy name
help us remember our purpose
and why we came

make this purifying experience
easier on us
on our souls, on our worldly existence
polish us
enlighten us
so leaving only good behind
we do more than our empty words
could ever express

may all those who pass by
be blessed with the clarity
choosing the right from the wrong
they are led
to where they belong

if you are in our humble hearts
your essence blends
in the speech that flows
and the transcending spirit
branching upwards
unceasingly glows

with a heart full of gratitude
I only ask of you
to keep us close
quieten our minds
so you, my Beloved
can be the overflow

how is it
that you give
before I even ask

the keeper of my heart
the saviour of my soul

may I never forget
the revered value
of each feeling sacred
leading me back
to where I belong

the sun rises
burns brightly
shows its might
then dies a death
in your world every night;
the full moon
in all its beauty
waxes and wanes
how many times
have you looked up at the sky
and noticed all this change?

people walk into your life
play different roles
give you love
nourish your souls,
give you reasons
to shed tears
or to laugh
over the years!

but when their time comes
they go their way
leaving you
by yourself
just like the day you first came

you, mortal being
with immortal soul
few more years
or who knows how many days
or how many breaths
you have at stake

what did you do today
to make a heart smile
soothe someone’s ache?

what did you give away
that made you richer
than yesterday?

how did you please your Beloved
knowing, that in the end
its only between you and Him

did you pause to reflect, to think
or went about unaware, unconscious
like every other day
acting on your whims?

no matter what I say
no matter how many ‘thank you’s
I convey
words of gratitude
will never be enough
in return of what
You have given me
