A Note To God
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
I watched as her little hands struggled
To dig a small hole that day.
Then in it placed a single piece of paper
Before it could blow away.
She gently put a rock on top
As I heard her quietly pray.
“Lord, when things get rough for me
Please read what this note has to say.”
I wanted so to uncover her treasure
But I knew it was meant for God.
So I turned and walked away
Leaving it safely beneath the sod.
Things had been hard for her
Since God called her father home.
I knew the pain this child was suffering
And how she must have felt so alone.
Years seemed to fly by
Faster than the second hand on a clock.
More than once I would hear her whisper.
“Lord, it’s time to look under the rock.”
The day of her high school graduation
And then again on her wedding day
She mumbled that same short prayer
Before another gave her away.
When life’s trials overwhelmed her
I don’t know how she made it through
With the words “Lord, look under the rock”
“You’ll know what to do.”
Each time she said it
My curiosity grew more and more
I finally asked her the question
I hadn’t dare to ask before.
She took me to the yard
To her special rock’s resting place.
As she gently uncovered the note
I saw a radiant smile come on her face.
I opened the yellowed piece of paper
Anxiously wanting to see what it had to say.
My eyes filled with tears as I read
“Lord I really need a daddy. Please be mine today?”
