A Prayer…

1 02 2009

Now I lay me down to rest

I pray my soul can stand this test

Of watching critters lose their homes

While owners gripe and cry and moan


I long for strength of spirit and

I pray they’ll find a home again

Where they will know a loving heart

I can’t do much, but it’s a start..


And spare me from the owner’s pleas

About the baby’s allergies

Or how they’re moving out of state

Or spitefulness ‘tween cat and mate


Please keep me sane while dealing with

The woman who bought as a gift

A wriggling tiny ball of fluff

That now is playing way too rough


Remind me I should bite my lip

When confronted with “he grew too quick”

“I didn’t know he’d get so large”

“He seems to think that he’s in charge”


Protect my heart when I hear them say

“I think we’ll breed our dog one day”

Sometimes I think it’ll break in two;

Each day brings trials harsh and new


And if I die before I wake

I pray one hopeless soul you’ll take

My tears are gone, my faith is bare

Lord, please hear my rescue prayer.
