Army Mom’s Safe Haven

ON THE LOSS OF CHILDREN

Dear God:

please ask the stars
to shine brilliantly tonight -
For Your Home is new
to my dear child
and this is his first night.

My child hasn't been long gone -
not long enough to know his
way around -
not long enough to know
the nooks and crannies
of this hallowed ground

Dear God -
send a spray of silver stars
blazing through the velvet sky
so that when my darling wakens,
Your presence will be known;
So, he will understand,
that he will never be alone.
