The Power of Prayers

Can You Hear Me—Poem

Each day, I sit down to pray,

I look upwards, towards the sky,


With folded hands, my heart prays,

My eyes search, for someone,


Whose presence can be felt, not seen,

I try to concentrate, once again,


With closed eyes, and deep emotions,

Can you hear me, Can you see me.


My mind is distracted,

With the smallest sound,


As the mind travels, faster than light,

And, it’s most active, when you’re ‘still,’


Once again, I try to concentrate,

Can you hear me, can you see me.


Concern about the near and dear ones,

Dominate my thoughts, once again,


Their big and small problems,

But that’s the reason, I am praying,


I ask for forgiveness (to leave),

For my lack of concentration,


‘He‘ smiles, or so it seems,

‘He‘ always does,


Once again, I try to concentrate,

This time harder, much harder,


Once again, and again,

Can you see me, can you hear me,


I finish my prayers, with the hope,

That ‘He’ heard me, ‘He always does.’

Pray with your heart.

Pray with your heart.
