BRUCE MARTONE


PLEASE GOD HEAR ME


I WENT TO MY CHURCH TO LITE A CANDLE
AND SAY A PRAYER OR TWO NEAR THE ALTAR
HOPING GOD IS READY TO HEAR
AND ANSWER MY PRAYERS AS I BEGIN TO SAY
TRYING TO KEEP MY TEARS AWAY,
SO GOD OH GOD PLEASE HEAR MY PRAYERS
AND HELP ME BECAUSE YOU ARE MY LAST HOPE
THE DOCTORS HAVE GIVEN UP ON MY SON
SAYING HIS DAYS ARE NUMBER
BUT HE IS MUCH TO YOUNG FOR YOU TO TAKE
SO PLEASE GOD I'M BEGGING YOU
FOR HEAVEN SAKE
BE THE MIRACLE HE SO NEEDS
AND MAKE HIS HEART SO MUCH STRONGER
THAT WOULD MAKE HIS LIFE SO MUCH LONGER
I'M BEGGING YOU GOD PLEASE HEAR MY PRAYERS
I'M DOWN ON MY HANDS AND KNEES
ASKING YOU ONCE AGAIN PLEASE
PLEASE GOD HEAR MY PRAYERS
BEFORE IT'S TO LATE
AND BEFORE THE DOCTORS CALL IT
WITH TIME AND A DATE,
BEFORE THEY BAG HIM, AND TAKE HIM AWAY
SO PLEASE GOD HEAR MY PRAYERS BEFORE IT'S TO LATE,

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
