I said a prayer for God today

I said a prayer for God today
To comfort in His grief;
As we destroy this beloved Earth
Must cause His heart to weep.

As heedless children we behave
And destroy our only home.
The oceans rise, the land is parched,
And the forests burn and burn.

I said a prayer for God today
It seemed the thing to do;
When Earth is dead and gone away
Will God be lonely too?

  1. La poesía es muy difícil que se entienda completamente con el traductor, pero si lo que quieres decir ¡Y eso si que llega!

    1. Básicamente, creo que estamos destruyendo la Tierra, y esto debe hacer que Dios se duela. Por lo tanto, le dije una oración por él, en lugar de por él, porque a veces también debe necesitar consuelo.

      con gusto,

      Beth

    1. Yes I did, Dorothy. I woke up with it in my head, and had to write it down.

      Thank you for your good words.

      warmly,

      Beth
