Heart Cry

India! India! My heart cries for the people of India, a beautiful nation.
Reflections of my visit grow deeper and deeper, a prayerful meditation.

The street weary face of a little boy, searches for meaning,
A fatherless city has left him, plenty tears streaming.

The hollow stare of a young girl, forced into trade,
No other choice has left her, abused and afraid.

Lord! Lord! How can this be?
“Yes, My child! I can certainly see. What would you do if you were Me?”

Lord! Lord! What can be done?
“Yes, My child! You are the one. Will you share the love of My Son?”

Lord! Lord! Are You sure this is right?
“Yes, My child! I know it is a fight. Will you walk by faith and not by sight?”

Lord! Lord! My career...don’t You know, it’s planned for the year.
“Yes, My child! If it’s too hard to bend, then who shall I send?”

Lord! Lord! My time…don’t You know, the leisure that is mine.
“Yes, My child! If not this day, then when can I say?”

Lord! Lord! My life…don’t You know, there could be danger and strife.
“Yes, My child! Why contend? Don’t you know, I am with you to the end?”

Lord! Lord! Really, why me?
“Yes My child! Your heart cries for India, I can certainly see...full of compassion,
as if you were Me!”
