Micheal R. Burch: I Pray Tonight

Dear Readers,

this poem affirms the importance and the magical power of prayer in dark times…. 

Michael R. Burch told us about this poem:

I wrote this prayer-poem
during a dark time in my life, and I like to believe that it has magical powers
of protection! 


 I Pray Tonight

for the children of Gaza
and their mothers


I pray tonight
the starry Light
surround you.


I pray
by day
that, come what may,
no dark thing confound you.


I pray ere tomorrow
an end to your sorrow.
May angels’ white chorales
sing, and astound you.
