A Mother's Prayer - Poem by Alicia Blackwell

I am a mother poor as can be
I try really hard to take care of my five year old son, Jamie
I know he hears me crying all through the night
Praying to you God that I'm doing things right

I put food in his belly and shoes on his feet
He always is good God so i try to buy him one special treat a week
I tell him he is smart
And that he has a special little heart

His daddy left a long time ago
He has a little boy that he don't even know
Jamie says he doesn't care, trying not to let it show
But deep in my heart i know its not so

So I guess my prayer to you God is this.......

Let my son have a happy life
And someday a good wife
Give him a family of his own
And a better home

But Lord until heis grown
Bless our poor home
Let me know I'm doing right
That I'm not losing the fight

Jamie is a special to me
That you can see
So help me dear Lord, Please
For his father's here and wants to take him from me
