For This I Pray

For This I Pray

My heart is heavy
with unshed tears
and trembles with a thousand
unspoken fears
that hide behind
a deceptive smile
and threatens to break
with ungraceful style.
I pray for courage and
faith and hope,
and a grateful heart
with the strength to cope,
and the Grace of God
to light the way
to lead me through
yet another day.

for this I pray....
