A Mother’s Plea For Justice


1.
You shall cross the barren desert, but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety though you do not know the way.
You shall speak your words in foreign lands and all will understand.
You shall see the face of God and live.R.
Be not afraid.
I go before you always.
Come follow me, and
I will give you rest.2.
If you pass through raging waters in the sea, you shall not drown.
If you walk amid the burning flames, you shall not be harmed.
If you stand before the pow’r of hell and death is at your side, know that
I am with you through it all.

3.
Blessed are your poor, for the kingdom shall be theirs.
Blest are you that weep and mourn, for one day you shall laugh.
And if wicked men insult and hate you all because of me, blessed, blessed are you!

I am a mom who lost a son.  I lie awake praying or crying.

I wonder if he is alive or dead.  Is he alright?
Is he eating or is he cold, maybe he is in danger.
Sleep is very hard to come by.
 
I miss his smile, his sense of humor,
the way he loves animals with such warmth.
I miss watching him paint on canvas and
turn that canvas into a beautiful picture.
 
I miss how neat he was.  About himself,
his room and all things around him.
I miss the little gifts he used to give me.
The phone calls when he made me laugh.
 
Now he’s gone out of our lives.
There is an emptiness that
cannot be explained.
I never thought I could feel this way.
 
Forgive me if I talk about him
maybe a little too much.
But you see, it hurts so bad.
