~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.

This is a lovely heart felt poem April...
I feel the same way when one of my brothers (military) is hurting. I can tell you what one of my Sargent's told me when I could not be there for one of my brothers or sister in arms...

Be string in where your ate, be strong in who you are, be strong for the ones you hold in your heart and say a prayer for their love, be strong so they don't have to. You are in their heart and they know your love for them is unquestionable.

It might not help, but I hope it does April. If he is close to San Diego I might be able to see him on your behalf.

I hope he is doing better. I have lost four brother to suicide and drugs. Everyday I think of them.
Aww.. sweetie. I know the feeling of having someone dear far away from you. Your words capture the pain and helplessness you are feeling. It shows how important he is to you. My sincere wishes that he gets well soon. He will be in my prayers.. have faith the almighty will surely listen to your desperate plea..★takecare★ xxxx
