There's a nice earnest touch to the voice here, an emotion that validates the theme. It's a real plea for another chance, a little more time, and it really speaks to the feeling that we have only so much time here on this Earth and so many opportunities to share the love in our souls. estory

We all need many years to complete that task. It's something that haunts me occasionally. What a wonderfully written poem.

Good luck in the contest!
Have a great day, and God bless.

This has perfect meter and sharp, clear alternating rhymes. But more important than its flawless form is the beautiful message. It is full of humility, sincerity and truth, It is a good example, I think, of how we all should pray. I like this very much. MM

    Thanks again, Adonna. If we could get everybody to try to make amends, the world would be a better place.

This should be the prayer of all mankind-to right the wrongs they have done. Through a flawless rhyming scheme and meter, you have expressed a humanitarian plea to God to linger on earth to accomplish His will. This is a heartfelt and caring prayer. Best wishes in the contest.

Your poem is exceptional in every respect--skillfully written, with excellent rhyme and meter, reverent in tone, and expressive in message. The reason stated for wanting more sunrises is noble and unselfish!

This is so softly whispered... A gentle plea to our Lord to allow us to make amends, for we, being human, have at times fallen well short of what would please our God. I felt this in my soul. We all know our time on earth is limited. The faithful among us wish to have a bit more of it-to set things right! God Bless!

This is a beautiful poem that pulls at the heartstrings of this, and I presume many other, reader. It makes me remember that it is never too late to right our wrongs, and that we could and should begin straight away (you never know what lies just around the corner. I don't need to say more about the poem itself - the rating says it all.

I have my conversations with God too. I think prayer helps. I often pray for my children and grandchildren. Excellent entry for the My Faith Poetry contest. Good luck!

    Thanks, Gypsy. I've been saving my prayers. Probably not a good idea.

I liked this a lot and think it would make a great prayer as I think all good Christians would say as I am sure most would have some reason for wanting to be given more time on earth to try and put things right. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Thanks, Kooky. It's too bad that a little more time on Earth couldn't be more pleasant.
