Oh My God!

This poem I wrote was an answer to a question asked by someone on Yahoo Answers website.

This was the question: "Tell from your heart... What would you reply if you receive a letter from God, asking you to recognize His love and caring for you"?

Here is the poem.
And I thought it's a poem, is it really? Please tear it apart!

Oh My God!

Oh my God,
Be kind and forgive me
for all the ignorance I had.

Now I realized
how much you cared for me.

Every moment you're watching me
and yearning to talk to me
but I always neglected to respond.

You're the creator and
you're the programmer

of this infinite universe,
in which I felt I was nobody,

I didn't consider me
as even a nano-particle

But you've a great heart to love me
and ask me to look back at you,

Oh dear God!

Oh dear God,
How should I ask an apology

for my negligence
and ignorance

that being an intellectual human
I've been such a dolt

and I never recognized your kindness
though you've created every comfort

for me

in this world for my enjoyment
such that I even forget
You, the Almighty God,
the giver of this Life
and all the joy and happiness.

Now,
I realized from Your love
that I must not forget
to remember you
every second of my life,

I know you're with me forever

And now,
Please grant me such a heart
that I acknowledge
every aspect of your great creation

You're the Omniscient
You know every thing

You're the Omnipotent,
You are the powerful
and you're the Energy
that drives the mechanism
of this Universe,

You're the Omnipresent,
you're everywhere
though I did't recognize you
from my feeble thinking

my thoughts won't imagine
the infinite facets of your existence
and the eternal play of your creation

I love you, my God

I love you, my God
my everything,

How can I now ignore your kind reminder
in such a personal letter
you wrote to me.

I know you're with me
forever,

forever loving
and
protecting every moment

My heart beats with the music
of your thought
I'm yearning to be with you
always and always.

Fine poem, my dear Ratnasikhamani.
However, kindly check this."How should I ask an apology
for my negligence?"
