~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, Chris... I appreciate you, your friendship and your prayers... ((hugs))
Well good thoughts are a way of helping or so I tell myself. Here you have captured the kind of love that is not asking the kind of love which is out there there beholding. You share your fragility , even up to the possibility of prayers as someone in need will benefit from a divine intervention.
A sincere lamnetation let's hope the heavens are listening and your brother regains health.

Thankyou for sharing this with the rest of us
