I Prayed For You
Author: Ing Twi Demalah


Last night as I lay in bed
Sleep eluded me
Memories of your kiss
Kept playing in my head
And my arms felt empty
Because they could not hold you
The moon seemed to dim her light
And the stars all faded from my sight
My blanket offered no solace from the burning wind
I swear I heard you whisper in my ear
I swore I heard your foot steps on my stairs
I ran to you but you werenít there
And so my heart started to ache
Only the shadow of your touch remained
I wanted to cry in my pain
And I prayed for you

God if you will hear me
Iím learning to love again
She gives me hope and light
She warmed this stone cold heart
She is my lover and my friend
Let her be mine and come to me
That she may save me once again
Please just give us a chance
Donít take her away from me
Oh God not now, not when,
Iím learning to love again

I stared out my window in vain
Hoping to see you returning to me
Here, in my arms where you should be
My alarm clock said it was 3:00am
And my loneliness set in
And I clutched my chest
And I held my breath
Seemed like I was going crazy
But I was missing you baby
And there was nothing, I could do
Because Iíve fallen in love with you
I fell upon my knees
Calling into the night please
I was crying in my pain
And my tears fell like lonely drops of rain
And I prayed for you

God if you will hear me
Iíve fallen in love again
And I know that this time itís right
She is the queen of my heart
She is the closest to heaven I have ever been
Let her be mine and come to me
That she may save me once again
To share the love I have for her
And the love she has for me
Oh God, I thought my hope was at its end
And Now, Iíve fallen in love again

I prayed for you

i had to grin

That is so nice. I felt what you felt just by writing down your emotions. So in depth. It's hard not to notice the longing and ache for completeness in your poem.

Cool poem!

Awesomely written....

Ing, this one was so full of life and emotion when it came to human essence...I loved the line "She is the queen of my heart, She is the closest to heaven I have ever been..."...Love it! This struck my heart as to what my special someone may ask God in request for me when he misses me...the key thing, God is involved. Beautiful! Simply Beautiful!
