prayer for a friend

stroking her hair
and letting her cry
what more could i do, God?

i wish You'd blessed me
with a magic wand

i'd banish the despair
from her heart's
dance of hope

i wish i could promise
her dreams fulfilled

i know the path she's on
my feet ache at the memory
of the long climb

i wish i could spare her
the halting journey

You've sustained me
so i trust You with her
what more can i do, God?
