My humble effort in raising hope in times of despair. See similar poems on my website
Gratitude for my breath, Gratitude for my heart, Gratitude for each blessing that’s playing a vital part. in telling me to hold on tight coaxing me to never give up, showing specks of hope one moment in time as the dirt of despair, I gently scrub. Gratitude to each silent prayer that feels like a gentle touch that protects that delivers hope in the hardest of times as strands of faith I collect Gratitude to all we met in life and all who left for a better world leaving seamless gifts of memories bring smile with tears as they gently unfurl Gratitude to the sun, the moon tiniest of creature that inspires to hang on, never let go one glimpse of hope our heart requires Let faith be the anchor, to sail us through this raging storm keep the light of gratitude burning as our daily duties we perform A prayer in every heart for those who need it most; come together as humans sans divide keep aside everything we boast. Come together, join hands, say a prayer for each parched soul; heal all those who you can playing your ever so minimal role. Coz ocean is a collection of tiny drops each heartfelt prayer makes a mark collectively we’ll force the storm to go back on a journey to hope, we all embark.
