A Prayer


Last night I bent my knee's for you
I asked the lord to guide and comfort you
I even shed a tear for you
Because, I felt so near to you.

I told the lord you were dear to me
As I prayed my heart went out to you
My knee's weaken but I stayed there for you
Until I knew God had answered my prayers for you.

Yes, I prayed for you.

    Hello Douglas,
    Very moving and spiritual without being overly religious and preachy. I was moved. I hope (and pray) that Kenna is well and your prayers were answered.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
