-- John F. Kennedy
Darkness and sorrow fill the day, along with anxiety and sheer dismay
In anticipation of good times, the soul will seek to stay
knowing that every single moment will bring with it something astray
Sleepless nights and weary days, take a toll on the self and the mind,
Forgotten, I have to listen to the birds chime or the leaves rustle,
while struggling to believing that times will change!
Sudden are some changes in life, random and irrepressible
their purpose, no one can seem to understand but call cruel!
I have but no choice but to believe that, every tort is meant to make me strong,
and, that the tough get going when the going gets though, I know,
but many a saying is easier said than done!
How more tougher will you make me to become?
Malleable and ductile that I already am!
Oh Creator, test me and my person as much as you wish
but spare those loved ones who I unreservedly cherish
For all your might, power, supreme and glory,
you still come far lesser than the ones I call kin!
My Mother has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, which is an acute form of muscular rheumatism. It has been extremely painful for Her, over the past couple of weeks. Recovery is slated to be slow and long drawn. Tied with work, and located far from home, neither my brother, nor I, are able to be by Her side and offer support and provide comfort! I request all of you to say a prayer for Her speedy recovery! She means a lot to us!
Additionally, my Grandmother in Kerala isn't keeping well too! Age has taken an immense toll on her, although she continues her daily chores without any interruption and support! She has been at the forefront of our family, leading us in times of good and bad, providing us inspiration and comfort at all times. It's been 4 years since I last met her and hope to travel to Kerala later this year! I hope my prayers are answered!
Today is the birth anniversary of the famed poet, Sir Rabindranath Tagore
