Light a lamp for the memories lost at the hands of fate,
And for the memories made on the paths of pain.
Light a lamp for the journeys made,
And for those that ended before taking a step.
Light a lamp for the love blessed,
And for the tears shed when it quietly walked away.
Light a lamp of hope for those lost in darkness,
To help them return from such perilous realm.
May the blessing of each lamp you lit spread the joy of happiness in your world and beyond,
Like the shine of morning sun at the cusp of glorious dawn.
On this blessed festival of Diwali resolve to brighten your life like the Syamantak,
To walk countless miles in the light of righteousness and inspire others to take their first.
Note : Syamantak – The most famous jewel of Hindu mythology.
