Bandages of Prayer

by Randy Chambers, 2003-12-15

No word can stop the flow of tears
within the pain you suffer now,
And prayers seem more like bandages
that loosely hold your heart in place,

You know that better days will come
but cannot see when that shall be.
For what is now your daily bread
seems more your daily agony.

I will not claim to know your pain,
or what you’re going through.
I’ll simply try to do my best
to just be there for you.

Though your wounds right now seem endless,
please remember I will be there,
To dress your wounds the best I can
beneath the bandages of prayer.
