But I Prayed

A poem from the novel
"The Essence of Poetry II:Gerald's Sophomore Yet Grown Poetrybook"
Written by: Gerald L. Ingraham


When you long for something so bad,
You ask not of Santa for your demand;
I would like to rekindle what we once had,
So I prayed and put it in the Lord's hand.

I neither bothered to bow on my knees,
Nor stand at bedside asking him please,
But I prayed...

We have had ourselves ups and downs,
And I have had my share of tears and frowns,
But I prayed...

There were moments where we disagreed,
With lonely night when there was not a need,
But I prayed...

I fathom that you were hurt by a foolish guy,
And for that, it is hard to give my love a try,
But I prayed...

It had been times, I was worried and alone,
Because I thought you were well off and gone,
But I prayed...

I felt when the relationship had gone sappy,
Long before you said that you were unhappy,
But I prayed...

I prayed just a night ago,
For God Almighty and above
To touch me where I would know
How to give you all my love.

I prayed very hard and well
For the strength to forgive,
And have an apology to tell,
If I erred for an us to not live.

I prayed not that quite long,
To become a rather better man,
And to stand beside you strong,
As I try to be the best I can.

I prayed for once with heart,
And put the matter in God's hand;
Better communication from the start,
To listen, care, love, and understand.

Asking to heal us with blood of the lamb,
For to us eventually see eye to eye;
Asking him for you to see me as I am,
Not as all men who love to tell a lie.

But I prayed...
For the mentality to stop my accusations;
But I prayed...
For the fortitude throughout our situations,
But I prayed...

This is my ultimate Christmas gift,
So ask for it in the name of the Lord;
I know he can provide, if he can uplift,
To just put us back on one accord.
