**Please join me...
for it hurts less when we hold one anothers hand..



~A Poets Prayer~


Lord hear this prayer for healing rain
Let it wash away this day's unending pain
Please Lord ... send us down a gentle wind
Warm breezes of comfort in quiet, kind, intend

Lord light the night with an emerald moon
With sapphire stars that wont fall from view too soon
Let the night's shadows blanket us in peace
With the dawn's orange glow may we find our release

Lord give us the strength to stand tall in this time of loss
So that we may hold each other up bearing the weight of grief's cross
Lord send us an Angel to sing to the children when they cry
Let them sleep serene in harmonies of Heaven's lullaby

Lord light the way as we make this journey back home
For if we travel your path Lord ... we never walk alone
Send us a sign Lord ... so that we may understand the reasons
For we know all that you do has purpose, for everything there is a season

Lord whisper upon the wind so that we may hear your forgiving voice
Teach us acceptance as you hold our loved ones in your merciful rejoice.  


Janet Marie

Tears of sadness...bless us all and those we love

Let my words fall first upon deaf ears before a closed mind...

Well I looked to the sky for my anthem
The words and the music came through
But words and music can never touch
The beauty that I've seen in you

When dark clouds covered sight
and daylight turns into night
within the tears of many souls
emotions flow without control
Helpless arms reached to sky
voices contain heart wrenched cry
prayers and thoughts are send above
united in prayers to our Lord of Love
to be with us in these days of sorrow
however we can face tomorrow
guide us through these darkest rays
light our path in these terrible days.

For those who've lost I'll mourn today
Prayers I don't speak I'll do it my way
It took my breath the things I did see
Act of men who's minds were not free
It took only a moment to shatter lifes
Result of ridiculess senceless strifes
If you believe in prayers please pray
I mourn them in my own humble way

Thank you Janet. Touching my heart in sharing of this great tragedy. I have hurt all day from this act of senseless violence. Even the grocery store could wait, as I just wanted to go home and hug my family really tight. Much love and hugs your way.

Sincerely,

I am still shaken from seeing the footage, and I don't even want to think about the possible outcomes from this. All I know is that the free world better not sweep this  under the table or we all lose.

I'm sorry this maybe should be a prayer for the victoms and their families.

No More


Please, I cant watch or hear anymore
someone I love is still unaccounted for
My heart cant stand this another minute
I don't want to be in this world without him in it

Please forgive me for not doing my daily replies
I cant read poetry for these tears in my eyes
My heart hurts like Ive been kicked in the chest
I'll never understand why life must give such a test

How can one man do this to another
In the eyes of God we are of one...my sister...your brother
What happened to compassion and humanity
Is justice a cure for this kind of insanity

Please no more ... I cant witness the sorrow
I want to wake up and it be yesterday again tomorrow
Then there would be a second chance to make this right
A chance to rewrite ... let this all be just a bad dream of night


Yesterday our innocence died ... on her stone read War is Hell
Tomorrow revenge will be justified ... I pray the world's soul will live to tell.


Janet Marie

Everyone needs a prayer, and some are intended more than others to be shared as often as possible.
