I was reading up on some missing persons cases, about where they were last seen, what their families have said and I just felt awful for those that are affected and a poem popped into my mind and I just had to write it down.

So here it is...

A missing person’s picture appears

My thoughts turn to prayer for their return

Can’t help thinking of their family’s tears

And of how terribly their hearts must yearn.


I stare long into those missing eyes

And wonder what they have endured

I wonder where they are if they can hear the cries?

Were they snatched away or deceitfully lured?


It breaks me to think of their plight

My heart wishes it could lend a hand

All I can do is pray with full might

Pray that goodness will take a stand.


My thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost

And with those who have never been found.

May we strive for the good no matter the cost

And pray for peace to resound.
