Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Dear God
 

 
Beneath the blankets torch in hand
The child whispered low...,

Dear God, it's me again, Annalise,
I made a promise to you a little while ago
But mom has got no better,
And I thought you'd need to know

She's looking awful pale now
Her voice is hard to hear
She frightened me this morning
She said you must be coming near

I told her I would speak to you
After all we had a deal
If you left my mom and me alone
I'd never lie nor steal

I'd never shout or scream again
Never do as I should not
But her temperatures not breaking
She's burning up, real hot

I know that your real busy
And there's many a deal being made
But I thought I had your promise
God, I'm so afraid

So tonight I thought I'd remind you
God's promise is his bond
Please check out your promise list
And leave mom here, where she belongs

The morning came round quickly
Annalise's mom had passed away
Her aunt had tried to comfort her
And this is what Annalise had to say

I made a deal with God last night
And I heard him answer me
God's promise was what's best for mom
Would be the way that it must be

I told him if he needed her to be with up high
I would be a brave girl, try hard not to cry
But promises are hard to keep
Especially when they don't turn out how we like
But if mommy can not be with me
God promised she'd be safe with him tonight

The aunt looked at this little child
Her faith in God had made her without fear
She took her hand, squeezed it tight
Holding her quite near

God promised me I'd be alright
Annalise said through fought back tears
He told me auntie would come for me
And look she said, your here

Mommy has not left me
She's just harder for me to see
God's promise was although invisible
My mommy will always stay with me

Although the aunt was tearful
Through the glaze of eyes that filled
The two of them felt comfort
As they cuddled quiet and still
