In your legendary hands

Being disheartened at every bump and flump
I was always ready to give up
hadn’t I been lucky to be lifted up by your hand
for you are the one who taught me to stand
else I could’ve been lost somewhere in the sand
but you taught every golden lesson
with a rarely found care and deep compassion
giving my eyes those precious dreams
making me believe in the gleam
of the stars that shine on the heaven’s floor
whatever I’m and whatever I’ll ever be
I’ll be the reflection of the light
that you’ve candled inside of me
and I bow down to my Lord to praise
I’ve been lucky enough to have been raised
and nourished so well, so extra ordinarily
in your legendary hands.

There were those times when I would lope
for the fear of rolling down the slope
who else could have been there to bless me with hope
strengthening me inside out to cope
raising my confidence, teaching my conscience
at every path and every turn
it’s you from whom I yearn to learn
who worked hard for hours
telling me that I want to see you as bright as northern star
all what I have learnt from you it’s my life’s essence
my heart and soul’s fragrance
whatever I’m and whatever I’ll ever be
I’ll be the reflection of the light
you’ve candled inside of me
and I bow down to my Lord to praise
that I’ve been lucky enough to have been raised
and nourished so well, so extra ordinarily
in your legendary hands.
