Let Us Light, Tonight A Lamp…

Let us light, tonight a lamp,

To guide, those, in darkness lost,

Hold their hand, and lead them to light.

Let us light, tonight a lamp,

To spread our joy, to them who need it most,

To make them smile, ever bright.

Let us light, tonight a lamp,

To burn away the past, be strong,

To enjoy life, come what may.

Let us light, tonight a lamp,

To ward off evil, do no wrong,

While the sun shines, just make hay.

You can be that light, that shows the way,

Erase a little sorrow; make a heart with joy weep,

Just say with care, with passion and love,

“You are Wonderful” and you can touch hearts deep.

Today, on the festival of lights,

Let us lose, all misery and strife,

Laugh, and make others smile bright,

Let us cheer up, another little life.

Let us light, tonight a lamp.

Wishing All Of You, A Happy Diwali…

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
