LIKE A PREY

LIKE A PREY

Oh granny, why did you left
Your grand children with face
Fashioned with pathetic stare
To struggle alone till the end?

They are now like a prey-
Lost in the wildlife's den;
You were their hope,
Because you make them to glow;

Tell my grand children
I've went to meet my children
That's, their parents
Singing above with angels;

Here a little, there a little.
Orphans live day to day.
Some are young with bones so brittle,
Without family, yet happy and gay;

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
