oh dear God
i need more strength
courage and sustenance
Lord if you will
allow her please
join me tonight
in my dreams

oh dear God
i know you know
the depths of which
my sorrow flows
Lord if you will
hear my prayer
ease my broken heart's despair

oh dear God
i miss her so
how much longer
can i go
without her love
please intervene
give her to me in a dream

oh dear God
let her hold me
as she wipes
my tear stained eyes
let her say
just one more time
it will be okay
dear child of mine

my heart is still racing as I sit here, feeling every line of this poem...this plea to the Lord. You have captured, in these verses, the void, the anguish, the unspeakable pain of a daughter longing for one more touch/feel of her departed mother. I am moved by your words.

You have touched tender places in me today. Thank you for sharing.
