Heavenly Father, hear my prayer
I am so sorry, for not listening;
For not, seeking your word.
For asking for your help,
And not hearing a word.
Or perhaps, ignoring,
What I did not want to hear,
But I thank you dear Lord,
For saving me, from me.
What I wanted was not good enough,
Compared to your plan.
No, not good enough, he was not the man.
I wanted his comfort, his embrace,
I wanted his love, his smiling face.
But I know you have a plan,
there is a man for me,
hand picked by you,
if I am willing to see.
So, with that said, I thank you Lord God.
Sometimes the unanswered,
are the best answered prayers.
