I wish to repay

Sometimes i wish i could repay
with my money and presents
Sometimes i wish i could repay
with my love and presence
People walked into my life in
moments of despair and need
People helped me in times of
my flimsy anger and greed
Some carried me message of hope
Rest brought me a bundle of joy
They carried my burden on them,
and now i wish i could repay
It is not easy to give back,
for mother’s love is boundless
and father’s support is matchless
Your lover’s belief is your substance
and your sibling’s words a solace
Your friend is your mirror to reflect upon
when the whole world pounces on you
I wish to remain indebted to them
Now I don’t wish to repay these immortals
I will pass on my gratitude to our descendants at home
I will continue their selfless legacy for ages to come
