Diwali, 2012

You have lighted this tiny lamp.

The world, so mysterious, so dark,

Seems a shade less forbidding now;

This is not a small thing you’ve done.

When darkness comes, all business like,

To take control of our mortgaged hearts,

And everything seems lost, pointless,

Remember what you have done now.

You have lighted this tiny lamp.

As long as you hold onto it,

Nothing that is dark shall prevail,

You are the light in the dark world.
