Poem: Accidents

Accident

 

An accident is a surprise event;

An occurance we never had planned.

Sometimes good, but more often bad.

It happens suddenly with a blam.

We may make efforts to try to prevent them

But they're often beyond our control.

Cars and stairs and slippery ice;

Dangers from above and below.

We care about those who have been hurt.

Our healing prayers for them we send.

Dear God, please help ease all of their pain.

Please help them all be well again.

We don't always understand why bad things

Sometime happen to those who are good.

But we know you have your reasons why our plans

Don't always go the way we think they should.

Dear God of mercy, our Father,

As your children, to you we pray.

Please look after us and protect us

Each and every night and day.
