~My Prayer~

~My Prayer~

A Poem by AprilRN1210
"

thank you for your thoughts and prayers

"


I am a nurse… I help families everyday deal with pain, sadness, loss, and injury… It is what I do… Right now, my baby brother, who I raised as my own, is fighting for his life, hit by a drunk driver,  in a hospital bed- alone, on the other side of the country and I cannot help the one person I love most in this world.. I cannot begin to tell you how helpless I feel… This is my prayer I share with you…

















Without you, I would know not of love

a light in a life thus dreary

now, fighting for your life

my heart worn and weary.




 

You gave my life meaning

sweet spirit so giving

precious soul, my everything

my only reason for living.





 

When I wanted to shut out the world

scared, hurt and alone

you held my heart in your hands

with love I’d  never known.




 

My rainbow amongst the storms

lifting me from despair

I would give anything in the world

just to be there.




 

Overwhelmed with helplessness

to my knees I must fall

searching for his healing aid

upon his name I will call.




 

Crying out to the heavens

hear my desperate plea

have mercy on the innocent

please don’t take him from me!

Well that hits close to home for me… I had a girlfriend I lived with that was killed by a drunk driver… I was out of town with my band, I still feel the guilt of not being there when it happened.

A very touching piece of writing. Sorry to hear you are going through this. Nonthing worse than feeling helpless.

Very powerful heartfelt piece.
I really felt all the emotions in this piece.
Very sad, but full of hope.
Sure some people can relate to this, and going through something like this would be so hard.

My heart goes out to you, and your brother.

Wow this is moving, I recall years ago when an ER nurse was communicating with EMS's working a train car collision with 3 DOA's and 2 iv very critical condition all teenagers,when they received them at the hospital she had discovered her only two daughters were among them,couldn't even imagine the heartache and pain she must of gone through through the grace of God her daughters survived but could you imagine that?

I am really sorry, we lost him. Hope he gets your prayer, word to word in heaven. But you know he is looking right at you, protecting and helping you in every work you do. It's very rare you find a great brother, and he was, I am sure. This touched my heart.

I respect your job it's really hard to do like be a mother to a child be a sister to a person be a confident person who really take care most while they need more.
But in mean time of your need to someone to stay beside you and got no one is a very disastrous time.
Heart touching April.

Thank you Anne.. unfortunately it didn't help, but such is life...
This is another heartfelt write; I wish I had seen this earlier.
Makes me realise: The consequences one suffers for the actions of others.
I hope you find strength to bear your loss.

Take care.
