A child sees the sky and wonders
Does God really see me here?
He walks along the railroad track
And prays a simple prayer.

His sister skips a rope nearby
Does God really see her there?
She plays beside the flower box
She prays a simple prayer.

His mother works in the kitchen
Does God really see her there?
She cooks on top the Kenmore stove
She prays a simple prayer.

His father fights in land away
Does God really see him there?
He walks along the dusty trail
He prays a simple prayer.

His pastor comes to their cottage
Does God really see him there?
He brings the word of Jesus life
He prays a simple prayer.

A child hears the word and wonders
Does God really see us here?
He cries and fears a lonely world
He prays a simple prayer.

Jesus hears the lone crying child
For God really sees him there
He soothes the fear with love so true
He answers fearful prayer.

Lovely, simple, sweet.

Very nice. Holds the attention, and yet communicates the child like wonder of the questions. The contrasting images were well done.

I really like this. It has such a nice, pleasant flow. It would be a wonderful illustrated book. Good job.

I love the message in this poem.
Julie Ruspoli09/05/07
Such a comforting poem. Flows very well. My favorite line, "He soothes the fear with love so true
He answers fearful prayer." Oh how true. Great Poem Dub.

The message and writing are both wonderful. I see something that has several faces. Depending on how the reader interprets. Well done.

Did you intentionally use the word 'me' for some reason in the first syanza and not follow through with that particular POV with the rest of the poem? I don't know ... it seems there is a POV shift somewhere in the beginning two stanza's and I'm not sure which one is the right one! haha

Are we supposed to guess at the meaning of this one because everybody is 'wondering' and 'praying' yet God hears the sincere heart of the child. (?)

This is sooo precious, dub! I do love the simple, childlike quality that you've been able to capture here. Simple style, deep truth. Lovely indeed!
