To the Man Up Above:


26 March 2014


Though my words have been scattered

and my lips been tainted,

take her heart and lift it.

Take her mind and relieve it.

Take away her pain, not her life.

Don’t let her soul play hide and seek,

but rather hide her discretions  and

seek her happiness.

It’s better life worth living then no

life at all.

Guide her to those quiet waters

and hold her hand through the darkness

like in the stories you wrote for me.

Now, can you write them for her?
