Listen To A Child's Prayer - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson
When the little boy lays down one night, he said a prayer so sweet, and bright.
He said to, God, up in the sky;
'God, bless daddy, mommy, and me.
If I've said or done any wrong,
bless me for being dumb.
Bless my dog dear lord, and may he sleep well,
And please, God, don't send, Scooby Doo, to Hell.
He didn't mean to bite the mailman like that,
But, God, it's just that he thought the mailman was wearing a dogcatcher's hat.
God, please forgive sis for slapping me so hard,
Cause I just broke her electric guitar.
Mom done yelled, and daddy slapped me hard.
And, God, when, Jimmy gets home, hide his toy car,
I didn't mean to throw it that hard.
Please, God, give me a helping hand,
And if I should mess up anymore,
bless me lots just like before.
