God Keep Her Safe
I wish you could be here with me.
I miss you even in my sleep.
In my heart I hold you tight.
And cry for you in the dark of night.
I pray to God to give me strength.
Sometimes I feel I’ve taken all that I can take.
I know you’re happy and at home.
I wish that didn’t make me feel so alone.
I read your poems to keep me company.
That’s when my emotions really get the best of me.
I try to keep it locked up inside.
The pain is something I have to hide.
I can’t stop the tears from falling.
I wish you could hear me calling.
I’ll be brave for you.
I know you would tell me I have to.
I know you’re in a better place,
I asked God to keep you safe
