My Silent Prayer

by Roshni Kirpalaney, Hong Kong

I say it in my mind

But mean it in my heart

I am thankful for each day

That I am privileged to start

You've given me life

And the freedom to believe

That whatever the task

No matter big or small, I can always achieve

I am grateful for your wisdom

For the guidance you've given me

For your patience and your trust

And for letting me be me

I have leaned on you in times of need

And thanked you when they've turned good

I know you'll always help me

Because right beside me you've always stood

I thank you for everything you've given me

For all my family and my friends

And unlike a fairy tale

My love and devotion never ends.
