And I Asked God - Poem by sam furman
And I asked God to grant me love
To help me feel alive
For many years I felt alone
And thought myself deprived.
And I asked God to grant me hope
To hold trust in humanity.
The scorn that I had felt for years
Cast shadows on my sanity.
And I asked God to grant me strength
For events that must transpire
To walk the path that I must take
And achieve all I desire.
And several times, I thought I heard
His answer to my prayer
But it was only in my mind,
And was not really there.
I started to believe that this
Was how my life would be
That I would wander all alone
With no one there for me.
As soon as I resolved to live
My life with no one in it
Out of nowhere you showed up
(I still recall the minute) .
For that’s the moment my life changed
We two became entwined.
The love I feel is not just great
Consider it divine.
And I thank God, for now I know
Those things that I request
Came to me in the form of you
And I’ve been truly blessed.
