Salutations – Poem By Mehedii Hasan

Salutations – Poem

A day starting with sunlight
A soul asleep at midnight;
Becoming a dreadnought rising
At the moment happiness blowing.

Oh! Great, my Almighty,
Again, wake up to live;
Thanks to you, drive me well,
Suddenly ringing the bell.

We have many reasons-
To take breathing,
You gave us a whole world with sheltering;
However, we made mistakes; you have forgiveness,
Every day, we should count our diminutive success.
