Happy Dhanteras!

Poem Title: 
‘Being rich’

Rich as in
Thought,
Word,
Deed,
Values.

Rich as in
Not indebted

Rich as in
Having
A
Child

Rich as in
Having a home
In each friend's house

Rich as in
Having a smile
And
Simultaneous tears

Rich as in
Having
More than enough
To spend
And enough to spare
For a needy

Rich as in
Having a home
Filled with
Colors
And coffee stains.

Rich in pain,
And therefore
Richer in forgiveness,
And rich in
Mindfulness of trying
Not to hurt another.

Rich in love
From a little doggie
And a pretty, tall daughter.

Yes, rich in faith
Extraordinarily rich,
In the knowledge
That miracles happen.

And richest
To have you
As a divine creation
In my life!
