but for the cries in the night
and the God that hears the love
over the pain
borne from the womb
of a mother, too young
to know that her mistakes
also cost
you dearly.

But for the angels in the night
that he sent and the spirits
that watch over the souls
that ache to be free
before its time for them to be;
but for the love that is
stronger than those that sought
to take you
when you
angrily threw away
the desire to live,
I would have lost you tonight.

But for your finally sleeping form
in the bed where you lay
fitfully fighting
the madness that almost
overtook you,
I would wish that I had dreamed
this nightmare...

Oh this is emotional! This is true? I'm sorry, but God watches over them! You'll all come through!

I missed this one the first time around - It's just so poignant and certainly relevant to a parent's plight - Let's go another round.. Nicely written, iloveit...
