the world and the love of God Almighty

HOW I PLAN TO LIVE MY REMAINING DAYS

As age starts gaining advantage over a person,

The hearts and minds start feeling their effect,

The bounce of youth loses its proportion,

Making many people tremble and shake.

 

Save those people who are physically active,

Eat the right diet and who sleep in peace,

Such are few but their inner gaeity,

Keeps them safe from even a sneeze.

 

I am training myself to stay in shape,

Not to develop the stoop of the gait,

Peace of body and mind are my balms,

And praying to God keeps me great.

 

I shall, God willing, not let the decades rob,

Me of the energy which in youth I had,

Turning to God, prostrating to sob,

Will, I am sure, not mske me a snob.

 

In this busy world of materialistic tastes,

Spirititualism is the remedy for peace,
Being thankful to God and remembering Him,

WIll never steal away one's youthful states.

 

Ir is true that I am sometimes very sad,

Depressed, gloomy, nothing to be glad,

But whenever I turn to my Loving Creator,

Peace of body, heart and mind take over.

 

I love my Almighty God, live in His Light,

And in His Love my days are ever bright,

Gloom, if it spreads its tentacles around me,

My Merciful God's Light always saves me.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

SOMEHOW THIS POEM HAPPENED...IN  BETWEEN MY TEA BREAKS...DURING WORK AT THE OFFICE. THE WORDS JUST START COMING DOWN LIKE SOFT RAINDROPS FALLING FROM THE SKY...SENT BY GOD ALMIGHTY TO REPLENISH ONE'S BODY, HEART, MIND AND SOUL. I FIND THIS LIKE GOD'S MERCIFUL MEDICINE BEING DISTRIBUTED TO PEOPLE LIKE ME, WHO SOMETIMES START FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE ADVANCING YEARS. I DO HOPE THE READER ENJOYS IT AND TURNS TO THE LOVING GOD ALMIGHTY.
