a little prayer for you

it can be

a little prayer . . .


it  works

i called a friend

soon going into surgery

she was frightened


i was not sure what she would say

i asked if it would be okay if i prayed for her


she was silent

for several minutes

then she said

don’t you think it’s too late to pray?


i guaranteed that it is never too late

and i would send a prayer each time

i thought about her


she said nothing

for several minutes

than fighting tears

she said “no one ever offered

to pray for me before”

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
