A little light

You lit me long ago,
A little light,
Oh so small.

You sheltered me from wind and rain,
You sheltered me from all the pain.

I grew up fast,
Strong and alert.
My flame grew and traveled the earth.

It fought wars,
Brought peace,
Felt the brunt of life and death.

Seeing my fellow flames
Reach their end.

That’s all we are,
a fragile flame,

Your protection provides
a chance to live.
Without which,
Nothing would exist.

Happy Bandhi Choor Diwas.
Thank you Lord for all the blessings you have given us.
