~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.

My thoughts are with you April I am so sorry to hear about your brother. I hope they catch whoever did this and then throw away the key. There is no excuse! You are very brave I could not have shared something like this!

There is no way to adequately review this. The emotion is palpable and we all pray with you and for you and your brother. A million hugs, I just don't know what would be right to say at this point.

Thank you so much Eve for these kind words and prayers.. I honestly appreciate it..
April...sigh...I'm so sorry...I'm bawling like a baby right now, wishing I had the words to express how awful i feel...I'm not good at comforting people and I'm struggling mightily to find words that will do justice to just how sorry I am for you right now...this news is absolutely devastating, but I know exactly how you're feeling...I went through the same thing with my Dad two years ago...I can't even focus enough to comment on the poem itself right now...I can only assure you that I'm praying vigorously for his recovery...this will be on my mind all day now, as well as you...again, I wish I had more words to express how I feel, but you have my tears and my hugs right now, and you know you're in my heart ((hugs))

Thank you for your kind words and thoughts Blue, I appreciate it..
April, they say that fellowship and prayers in unison won't go unanswered, you have people across a nation, a cross an ocean, praying for your brother and your family . . . I've prayed and I will continue to do so.

Thank you Doc... you have been so comforting and I appreciate it.. more than you know..
Saddened to hear of this April, it is so tough when loved ones are so far away, and you can't get to them to support them when they need you most. Be strong.
My thoughts are with you and your brother.
Hugs

I am so very sorry for what you and he are going through. It is a pain that only you can know. I can only hope that those who surround him to help him through this time will be as sincere in their intentions as you are in yours.
