After all,
My ocean of tears
My decibel of cries
My marathon of prayers
My lonely,long journey
Of burdens and pains
Are not in vain

My burden is huge
My journey is tortuous
My pages are filled
My heart is littered
And my hope seem shattered
My requests to the King
My mount-hill of propositions
Are as tall as the sky

After all,
My labour is not in vain
My thousand years of asking
My everlasting years of seeking
Are not in vain
For an Angel of mercy
Has hovered on me

After all,
My ocean of tears
Have conveyed me
To my safe haven

Thank You heavens
For I am thankful
In prostration
I am thankful in servitude
