I’ll Pray For You…

Out of thin air… they were there

Two men with beards… and covered hair

We are men of wisdom… the elder said

We can tell the future… what lies ahead

In your eyes I see… you’re not so well

You’re lost inside… that I can tell

Your body is here… your heart is not

Your mind is roaming… surely it’s out

He handed me a paper… told me not to unfold

Asked me questions… at numbers he wrote

In moment of magic… I was amazed

The answers I gave… were already in my hand

He said my son … you belive we are true

I’ll expect you now… to pay what is due

Without hesitation… I handed him his request

Deep inside… I was under his spell

He shook my hand… as he turned to leave

Your luck will change… just believe

Of this confusion… you will be through

Trust me son… I’ll pray for you

    I enjoyed your poem, a lot. It stands to reason that men of wisdom would pray for you.

  5. ladynimue says:

    If you think you are wise, I guess it paid well to be meeting those men of wisdom 😉
    I enjoyed the rhyme !!

  6. what a sweet piece!!!! sort of serendipitous…lovely!

  7. Aleza says:

    What a fun read. I love how your arranged this!

  8. You know, I understand Trisha’s response. I bumped into someone in San Francisco who did this sort of thing and he was a grifter. I played it out because there’s a good story there. Thanks to both of you, I am reminded of that and have to write it out.

    I think you mean this seriously though and it’s a lovely poem and sometimes we do indeed meet wise folk in the street or in our dreams and meditations…and all to good purpose.

    Well written. Thanks for a fine ride, Sam.

    Sort of dreamy and exiting. I like it.

  10. Bodhirose says:

    I understood what Trisha meant too. There are a lot of charlatans in this world.

    Believing costs us nothing…

    interesting piece. “You’re lost inside… that I can tell / Your body is here… your heart is not / Your mind is roaming…” to this i can relate…though i’m still waiting for my wise men… or women, i’m not picky…
