Bless the Souls

Updated on July 11, 2014

Bless the Souls

Bless the Souls

Who lie awake

Scared of the night

Scared of the day


Raging fires

Or missiles in air

Dying mothers

And other despair


Bless the souls

Afraid to speak

Disabled men

In some way weak


Cannot cure

The form they bare

Or triumph mental

Wear and tear


Bless the souls

Who witness the dead

Or hide their face

From the world ahead


Crossing hearts

And hoping to die

Or haven't got

A tear to cry


Bless the souls

Who can't get ahead

Wishing or wondering

For a meal before bed


Innocent people

Without knowledge, yet

Grasping reigns of life

'Til death


Bless the souls

Who need to be blessed

Forever in my heart

You have a place to rest

      Great poem! The closest I got was Toys for Tots and raising funds for the Children's Hospital in Sac.
