A Conversation With God

This poem is my personal experience. The emptiness that I felt after my father's sudden demise provoked me to write this poem.

God Loves Me

One day I met God and I cried,
“All my life You gave me only pain.
You did not make me look good,
Nor atleast give me intelligent brain.

You did not gift me any art,
Which could earn me praise.
You never granted any of my wishes,
Though I prayed to You in so many ways.

Your angels stole from my life,
The man who was my guiding star.
I began to feel so helpless that,
My mind and heart were at war.

Why did You give me few friends,
When all others were given so many?
All shared their love with someone.
But You gave me nobody..!!”

God listened to all my woes,
With patience and gentle smile.
And when finally I became silent,
He stared at me lovingly for a while.

My child!”, He began softly,
On my head placing His hand,
You are one of those very few,
Who are blessed by me on this land.”


“By giving you so much pain,
I taught you the power of healing.
And by not giving you much intelligence,
I made you simple and not cunning.

I gave you the art of discovering,
In yourself the shining spark.
Your wishes were left unheard so that,
You achieve them by your hardwork.

The guiding star of your life,
Was a man who was a gem at heart.
I brought him to my paradise,
So you learn to carve your own path.

The few friends that are gifted to you,
Are the most loved angels of heaven,
They love you, care for you, and,
Will always be there when you need them.

I gave you a heart that feels,
Only the love that is pure and true.
I’ll give your love not just to anybody,
But someone who really deserves you.”

Thus saying, God held me,
In His warm embrace for sometime.
He made me feel His love and,
Gave me happiness for lifetime.

I liked it a lot. I felt despair, and it gave away to relief and pride... I like it a lot.

I felt sorry for the loss of your beloved father. Hope you're finding solace in such a beautiful poetry of your creation that has emerged from the sad incident in your life.

The 'emptiness' that you experienced is the treasure of knowledge you are truly made of.

Rathnashikhamani Sir,
The satisfaction that I get out of writing poems can be compared to only a few joys of this world.
Yes, the vacuum left by my daddy can never be filled, but it surely has made me grow stronger.

@Tranquilpen:

As a daughter I wrote what I missed after my daddy left me but you made me realize how my daddy would have felt on reading this poem from the heaven. Parents also crave to see their kids express love to them, that's what you taught me today.

thank you.
Love & Smiles,
Lavanya
