resounding particles

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?

times may change
years may pass
may my heart find peace
only in things that last

at the end of the day
at the end of my life
may it only be meaningful things
for which I strive

may I never be misunderstood
or cause someone pain
may only clarity, selfless love
pulsate through my veins

people might change
they might want to come and go
but when the time is right
just make it easier for me to let go

through this journey, through this life
its your love and light I ask
innocence of a child
kindness in this heart

it is not one less year of this life
it is one year closer to You
in everything I seek, believe and do
may I only appease You
