A Prayer Answered


She feels helpless like a frightened dove
A grave danger lurks on the life of her love
She prays before god with a heavy heart
Unsure of her future, unknown fears tearing her soul apart

The odds have been great against the valiant prince
Overcoming the hurdles that have been troubling long since
Buoyed by his love, he moves ahead
Finally to emerge as a victor with his fame widespread

Her prayers answered,
The pall of gloom disappears on all courses
Here comes her prince riding a chariot of love driven by white horses
Carries her into the moonlit clouds above
Where the stars witness their dance
And angels sing songs of their love

Hi Abhinav,
Actually I got the idea of this post
from one of the memorable episodes in Lord Krishna's life, the Rukmini Haran ( the abduction of Rukmini).


Thanks for your compliment.:)
