I have been the one writing for you,
Said I to God,
I wish you would write me a poem,
So that I would know
What goes on in the expanse
Of your subtleness
When it comes to my plight!
I was sitting under the shade of a tree
Enjoying the light breeze
As it brushes against my skin
Enjoying the babble of nearby children
As they clumsily ran after their ball
Enjoying also, the sight of the clear blue skies
As it stubbornly kept itself shut tight
Allowing me not to discern what was happening
On its other side!
My hand automatically took hold of my pen
And I started writing,
What was a poem from God!
A child, you shall always be one,
Fragile on the whole
You worry of the reactions of the sins
Of the sinners
You would have cured them with the warmth
Of your magic
Had I let you come to Earth with it!
A child, naive and gullible,
You pain for every little thing
That tugs your heart
Even if I have already made my word
Heard to you!
Your tantrums hurt me
You have no trust in me
You'd rather have faith in your limited vision
Than in my endless capabilities
I were the human here, and you,
Be soothed, be calmed,
Enjoy the lot that I have bestowed
Upon your fate,
Relish of it,
As if it were the treasure that the whole world seeks
Hide it, keep it a secret
As if it were easily to be stolen from you!
Be calmed, for I care about you
And I shall have your soul saved
Be soothed, for I worry about you
I watch each of your steps
I guide you, even when you realize it not
I love you
And want you to love yourself as you remain
The most beautiful of all my creations!
The pain that gripped me made me breathless
I looked up at the skies
And let my tears flow
Feeling as if they were drizzles of rain
Falling while the clouds played soft romantic tunes!
Forgive my laments, whispered I to God
I shall smile as from now
I shall smile at life
I shall smile at pain, at the evil in others,
At everything, from pricks to pleasures!
I will do as you wish
And allow me always
To be blessed by your mercy!
