That was unexpected...

Life is full of surprises
Every so often I surrender
Deep down I whisper
Oh, that was so unexpected!

Joys and woes
Ups and downs
Dreams and despairs
Laurels and losses 
Pats and whacks
Cunning conundrums
Sneaky solutions
Life is rife with unexpected
So often I whisper
Oh, that was unexpected! 

I fall, wobble, tremble
I struggle, whine, puzzle
I plan, it shatters
I raise, balance and walk away!
And I whisper
Oh, that was unexpected! 

Every so often
Life camouflages
Mysteries slither through
It's in the dark you see stars!

Nights fade away
Sun rises
Skies smile
Storms settle down
And I whisper
Oh, that was unexpected!

The Mercy from the Heavens
The Blessings from Thy Majesty
Teach me everyday
"HE is with the patient" (2:153)
"With hardship goeth ease" (94:6)
"HE tasketh not a soul beyond its scope" (2:286)

Never I've been so dumbfounded
Than by beholding HIS Mercy
For it bestowed boundlessly,
Every time I was taken aback.

I learned 
To Expect the Unexpected,
To Think the unthinkable,
To Imagine the unimaginable...
For HIS Mercy is beyond everything
Towering above my comprehensions
Surmounting my apprehensions!

O Lord,
To embrace Thy Love
To put trust on Thy transcendence
To know that I am blessed than many
There is no pleasure beyond!

I comprehend it, at times
Beyond my reach, many times
I am convinced.
Therein I learned
To embrace the unexpected
For HIS Mercy is unfathomable.
