An Open Prayer
Author: Don Fraser


Oh lord please listen to my plea
For no one can help me
But thee.

Will you please have mercy
And take my soul to thee
I live this life in misery.

Let me die in my sleep
Please do not let
People weep.

Please take me to your side
It is there I
Want to stride.

this poem doesn't have enough meaning or understanding what is the purpose of it its short but not sweet it explains nothing. Needs more content and sense of understanding.
