GOD ARE YOU THERE?

by:
Helen Steiner Rice

I'm way down HERE!
You're way up THERE!
Are You sureYou can hear
My faint, faltering prayer?

For I'm so unsure
Of just how to pray-
To tell you the truth, God,
I don't know what to say...

I just know I am lonely
And vaguely disturbed,
Bewildered and restless,
Confused and perturbed...

And they tell me that prayer
Helps to quiet the mind
And to unburden the heart

For in stillness we find
A newborn assurance
That SOMEONE DOES CARE
And SOMEONE DOES ANSWER

Each small sincere prayer
