A Prayer for America


I said prayer for you today
I hope you didn't mind
I asked God to comfort you
And put you tears behind

I prayed for peace and mercy too
To help you through these days
And for his loving guidance.
As he leads you on your way

You need not walk this path alone
Just turn around you’ll see
You have families and friends
To help make your pain ease

I prayed for miracles
And hope and happiness
And also asked to bless you...
When you are so stressed

I said prayer for you today
I hope you didn't mind
I just wanted to make sure
As I knelt down to pray

Please god, bless us America
Watch over and keep us strong

    Bravo
    You done it
    A poem called A prayer for America
    So touching
    I think that the message that you want to send out is
    Even though I am an American citizen
    I have respect for them
    And also I want to show my sympathy
    And pay tribute to my people
    This is how I choose

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
