The Loneliest Prayer
As I squat here in the lonely place A man maybe even you forgot, I wonder, Am I alive or not? I think it's more than ten years now Since my last friend left this place. I guess he's back home - Whatever that is - Among the human race. Forgive me Lord, If I seem untrue To the values that my parents taught, To my thoughts of you, Of family and of country - Those things for which I fought. But, as I've endured the endless days That dragged on into years, I've battled with all my very being To hold back bitter tears. My children, By now they're nearly grown. My poor wife - she's had that too; She's raised them all alone. I've wept to hold my darlings, To watch my children grow, To feel your presence, Lord, My faith in you to show. Bless me, Father, and take this life, Please let it end today. I wonder how they listed me - POW or MIA?
