A Bedside Prayer

~As yet another day comes to end
to God a prayer I do send~
~I pray another day will come
and bring Goodwill to everyone~
~My children will grow up to be strong
practice the knowledge of right from wrong~
~My life will be long enough to see
my youngest daughter earn a degree~
~That those of the hungry will be fed
and no longer their pains to be dread~
~For peace on earth to come to be
so all mankind kind can be free~
~I give thanks for my children born
for my life in them has been adorn~
~For giving me those special gifts
for they have been my total bliss~
~In ending I ask my soul to take
if I should die before I wake~
