prayer – April 24



face on the pillow

cheeks marked

by the oxygen



her eyes are down

barely open and

it scares

the hell out of



what happened to the

little girl, precious

diamond child,

at age forty three

years caught up.


you reach out

hug, kiss, wave

a hand across that

brow and say a

prayer for real.


really Father, God,

Blessed one, lay your

healing hands upon

this one.


whatever’s happened

help her to be whole
