Optimistic Child's Prayer - Poem by Nvisible 2Luv

Now I lay me
Down to sleep.
I pray the Lord
My soul to keep.
If I should cry
Before I wake
I pray the Lord
My tears to take.

    You are a grand poetess!

    When I awake with tears on face
    feeling like Phoenix
    the Lord tells me
    go buy your own Kleenex!

    So I do and when I done
    wiping myself dry
    stop by the orphanage
    drop off the box and say good-bye

    Then I hear the Lord from the sky
    tells me, toughen up boy
    all bodies do die
    You're not you body, I taught you well
    come party with me
    forgot about hell

    It's interesting I happened to come across this poem. Just recently a friend and I were talking about how the well known version of this prayer with the words, If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take, could certainly be scary for children to think about before closing their eyes to sleep.
    You've come up with a much nicer and not so what some might see as gloomy alternative! Well done!
