i thought I heard him say:

In silence—do you?”

I want to say!

I stand looking at his perplex face,

my mind wish to tell him: where I’m at,

feel as if it was the worse of place;

I was frightened: at those unfamiliar faces,

when I was displace.

Your fingers did not find me,

to wipe the many droplet of tears.

Still, “I love you!”

I can hear whispers shout,

in my dream:“ it’s a big disgrace!”

to think that love save you from Help1 space;

“for heaven sake!”—my head scream,

that was mean!’ So it seems;


In my time of need; still I love you,

I must not be ungrateful:

for I was given grace!

Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love.
