Does God? - Poem by Liz Colavecchio

I lay awake thinking of you
I wonder where you are,
If you know how much you mean to me
if you know I truly care.

Does God deliver prayers?
I wrote it in my head
and sent it to you
Air-mail straight to your heart

The tears roll down my cheek
i wonder how you are
what if there's no word for another week
why do you have to be so far?

'Dear God,
Watch over him
let him know how much he means
Keep him safe'

folded hands soaked with tears
active mind filled with fears
Does God deliver prayers?
I wrote it in my head and sent it
Air-mail to your heart

I close my eyes
my mind's so busy,
the night's a blur
and i can't sleep

'Dear God,
It's me again
I thought of an inside joke, but he's not here to laugh with me
That reminds me,
What if I fall, but he's not there to catch me
What if I laugh, but he's not there to help me
What if I cry, but he's not there to hug me...'

SOS please help me
SOS I'm freaking out
and there's no way out
of the World War Three that's in my head
'...What if I never get to speak to him again? '

'Dear God,
I'm still here, please give him this last prayer:
' Well big brother, I have to go
It's not fair, you being over there
Come home soon, I love you and miss you
stay safe and keep you're head down.' '

folded hands soaked with tears
active mind filled with fears
I wipe my face one last time
close my eyes and try to sleep
Does God deliver prayers?
