God Please Bring Completion Of These Seven Days - Poem by Leslie Alexis

I wish the tears that flow from my eyes
could purify this cruel world, for another,
Yet another beautiful soul seek refuge
In the open roads. God! be her brother.

She is very beautiful with aspiring hopes.
She's 15 but such brutality she’s seen.
The whip of the father never tainted her heart.
The love she has in her is so very serene.

She's hilarious and quirky, she makes me smile.
We speak of simple things like bread and tea,
I am taken in joy just knowing she’s there;
Even with her soul at war she brings tranquility.

I have said this to you before and I say it again
“You are precious, you are special, irreplaceable
Really, you are! “ Seven days is so very long.
Seven days without my friend.

But you asked it of me, so seven days for you
I'll wait. I'll hope seven days brings into fruition
Something great. For this seven day I'll pray for you.
Seven days in the wilderness, because of your situation.

Seven of me worrying, seven with no sleep.
For how can I when my mind journeys in search of you.
For seven days, the deepest of my heart you'll keep.
For seven days I’ll be terrible uneasy and blue.

I’m blue, B.C., writing this at the peak of day one.
Seven days in dog life and mine seems so very long.
For seven days please fight and keep carrying on.
For this harsh seven days, you have to be strong.

You asked me how my life is better because of you.
I say you fill my heart - fitting into empty space
For though young my friend, love has no age
God’s love that is, the one I see in your face.

In the choice of your friendship or gold and silver
I will pick that which my heart seeks.
