: Poet's Prayer by Gypsy Blue Rose

God hear my prayer
the prayer of my  heart
you never judge
what dwells in my thoughts

you hear my mind's 
lightning and thunder
and you quiet my storms

bless my spirit
where you abide

bless my pens and paper
bless the words I write

may they be beautiful
in your sight

may they be seen
by people not yet born

and when I 'm dust
may my children 
say these words

"she was a voice
for the unheard
and art was the language
of her soul"
