A Prayer For Papaw
My assistant pastors' father-in-law was in charge of the first company deployed when the war started. He is very close to his grandkids and Brian wanted me to write a poem for him as if it were from the kids. I thought it fitting to make a hub page for just this one poem as a tribute to All our soldiers and pray they all come home safe soon.
I have a favor to ask of you tonight,
It's really important, so I hope I get it right.
You see My papaw can't be here to tuck me into bed,
He had to go away and help somebody else instead.
I know my papaw loves me and didn't want to go,
But God, I sure do miss him and wanted you to know,
My papaw is the very bestest friend I got,
He tells me funny stories and plays with me a lot.
So God, if you would please go to him tonight,
Stay with him and keep him safe within your sight.
God, I sure would like it if you answered this one little prayer,
That way my papaw won't be lonely and maybe won't be scared.
Well God I have to go,
Mommy says it's time for bed,
But I'll be back tomorrow,
To talk to you again.
