Wordless Prayer:
 
On a lonely corner of a busy street,
Woman dressed in rags stares at her feet.
Hands clasped together for simple pleas,
Begging for help to heal the hurt she feels.
               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Empty arms where once a baby she held,
Heartfelt reminders still burning inside.
Touching his face and kissing his feet,
Holding him close to comfort his needs.
               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
The nights were long the dark unkind,
No friendly hand to support and guide.
The streets were busy and people cruel,
For this lonely soul and their battle to rule.
               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Wide empty eyes stare into the night,
A wordless prayer for help to heal the aching inside
Food was gone and no money to borrow,
Hopeless mind drowning in sorrow.
               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Holding her treasure with pride in her heart,
Stars in the heavens shone bright with their light.
When the baby`s cries died in the night,
The stars disappeared far from her sight.
               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Her angel is gone, her heart in defeat
Only her memories leading her feet
The days were hard her prayers brief,
Desolate thoughts trapped in her grief.
               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Wrinkles on her face, caused by the years
Two empty hands drying her tears.
A lonely soul filled with sorrow.
Broken heart, praying for no tomorrow.
