O Lord Hear my Prayer , sense my desolation
Another day out, this morning
Another doleful mind
I am far too old for dolls!
The simple prayers of childhood God bless mummy and daddy.
Long since given away.
Sophistication robs the child within and pretty words and sounding right cast umbra in its place.
In and out of clemency the faithful rain maintains a balance of wet or dry tears of loss and pain.
I love the Lord, my soul and all within rejoices, His blessed Name, I proclaimed my Affirmations ,I counted my beads, Christian and Muslim both.
There is a toy koala, William is his name with me has he been since 1985 battered and faithful he,
always there, waiting, waiting come to bed that I. Eye’s wide open waits he for me.
