For I Will Pray for You

I wrote this poem for a friend who lost her sister-in-law to a senseless murder. But to me as well, for the prayers I receive for a loss to a daughter’s senseless suicide.

For I will pray for you;
Life’s journey not dismiss.
Events we can’t control;
Events that ran amiss.

For those who look upon you;
For distress and weariness.
Instead will see before them;
A life of peacefulness.

Your life will carry on;
With honor and dignity.
For I will pray for you;
A life of peace and serenity.

In Heaven We Will Be
