Awake at night
Thoughts flowing
What could have been
If it had been
What could have been
If it was tried
What could have been
If they grasped “Yes”
If they worked with
Yet against
If they who ask
Please serve
Served as they ask
Others to serve

What would have been
Would have been
But is not

So prayer
A thought
A thought remains
For service given
Is not returned
By earth
Nor heaven
Earth’s lacking
Expected
Heaven’s lacking
Shakes the soul

So prayer
A thought
A thought remains
For a hope
Once before
Turned to prayer
Inspired action
Service given
Ran its course
Its ending
A goal near
But a goal
Still far

So prayer
A thought
A thought remains
Stirs not prayer
Stirs the portion
Of the One
Of the earth
With a thought
Of a Prayer

Body quakes
A tear drops
This ending
Service given
To God
To Church

And Prayer
A thought
A thought remains
A prayer short
To touch God
So God
Nearly touched
The distance short
To a prayer

And prayer
A thought
A thought remains
