~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.

Thank you so much for this lovely review.. I am humbled that I could touch you... I appreciate it..
I hope all the best for your situation firstly. As a poem, I feel like this is perfection. As I was reading it I felt a little bit of an offbeat flow (which I love) with the way the phrasing was and comma placements. The word choices were very eloquent and beautifully constructed. Great job!

Any time :).
There are many burdens that come to one in the Medical field, my late father,my living mother and aunt, departed brother, all had been in the business of healing and confronting the sick. I myself was once an aide to Hospice, but non of that will ever prepare a person for a close loss or near.

But you like many others will find her strength.

Oh dear God April, I have no words right now.... I am speechless and the tears are just running down my eyes. Today has been a tough day for me for many reasons but one is because a very close friend of mine lost her niece and I've been trying to help her cope and your poem... Well, it is filled with so much heart and love and the emotion is so raw. Goodness me lovely, I hope he is okay and recovers. You're in my prayers and I am sending much love and huggles to you....xoxoxoxoxox

Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers.. I appreciate them...
I've felt that anger, desperation, hope, and fear… My sister was the driver, and no one else was hurt. But, OH GOD those hours waiting, not knowing, no way of finding out, no way to help, to hold, to protect, to take it back…

Only my faith kept me from being utterly crushed by worry until we found out she'd be okay.

I hope your surround by people who love you both and will hold you and pray with you till you come through this dark time.

I'll keep him and you in my prayers.

Thats though April, hope he will be alright i cant even imagine how you feel. A big hug for you, wish words could do more right now. Dont want to fuel hatred, but drunk driving has got to be dealt with in an aggresive matter in every state. Again i hope he recovers soon and you can have some piece of mind my friend.
