Are you listening Lord, do you really hear
You must login to vote
The prayers I send you each day?
So many things are going wrong
I need you to point the way
The roof leaked last week, the carpet got wet
I thought they repaired it, I was really upset!
My tax return is almost due
I don't understand it (by the way, do you?)
It's cold today, almost 5 below
My furnace broke down...wouldn't you know
The plumber was late, he'd had a flat
Then overcharged me, for a thermostat!
I've done pretty well on my own, so far
(I've paid all my bills, haven't smashed the car)
As most widows go, I'm holding up well
But not today, as you can tell
When I was born, you did somethng wrong
You forgot to make me fearless and strong
Listen Lord, for goodness sake
Just this once, can you give me a break?
The way things are going, I'm really stuck
Could you find a way to change my luck?
I'll try not to bug you every day
And thnk only of others whenever I pray
Oh, thank you lord, you heard my plea
You really were listening to me
Just when everything seemed so bleak
You let me lose 5 pounds this week!
