A Prayer For You In Jail

by Y@ZM!N

Before I go to sleep every night

I shut my eyes really tight

And I pray to go that you're okay

Then I continue, whisper to myself and say...

Dear God: Tomorrow, today will be the past,

However I dont know how much longer I will last

I miss him so much and only you can understand

Because you have seen how many tears I have shed

Since that dark moment I found out he was in jail

All I could do was get on my knees and say a prayer:

Dear God: Forgive him for all the wrong hes done

His life is a mess right now but please keep him strong

Please help him see the wrong in his ways

But the most important thing is please keep him safe.

This poem is dedicated to my ex-boyfriend Scrappy who is in jail for murder. I MISS U EVERYDAY BABY!

Girl I am sure that I know who you are talking about. I grew up with him. His parents were Ann and Lamott....Keep your head up. Send my love his way.
