Let us then live for others

O sisters mine and brothers

 

Their pain let us appease

Stress from them release

 

A smile at times is enough

For the weary sailing rough

 

Let us save coins and change

And help from others arrange

 

And hear out the aggrieved

And embrace the bereaved

 

Items lying here and there

Those we can easily spare

 

Which we seldom or never use

Parting from them let us choose

 

Phone, skype and email

Their services we can avail

 

To inquire about those unwell

And who in tough times dwell

 

And before God let us cry

With that wailing teary eye

 

Prayers are gushing fountains

They can move mountains:

 

Lord! Take good care of the bitten

Shower thy mercy on the stricken

(Dr Shehzad Saleem)
