Dear God, I feel really bad right now,
Way down deep inside.
Today I just found out,
That yesterday, my good friends” Mother died.
They’ve been my friends for many years,
And helped me out a lot.
And now when they need help with their heartaches and tears,
Help to give is something I haven”t got.
There’s nothing I can do or say,
To help to ease their pain,
Except for the poem I wrote today,
As the words and verses came.
But, I just don’t feel that that’s enough,
To show what’s really there.
To give them comfort with love,
To show how much I care.
I just want to cry so very much.
But right now that’s something I can’t do.
For my feelings right now I can’t touch,
Because if I started to cry, I would never get through.
So Dear God, please stay with me,
Until after Monday night.
For that’s when I’ll be able to see,
If I can handle the hurt alright.
Thank You God,
