A Mother's Prayer for Her School Children





They must go
Dear Lord, I know
It is the way of life
A little child
Must learn to fly
Too soon the spoil and strife
Of living will
Blow good and ill
Across their tender way
And even now
I see a cloud
Creep up across the day
So thus I plead
Lord, fill their need
With Your compassion, then
If you deem fit
Dear Lord, please bring
The children home again

So many things we suddenly no longer take for granted...
