Pray for Me

I am an errand boy
Running the race of life
Swallowed by a river of flaws
Lost in the garden earth
Hoping to fly across, the silent sky

I’ve got a world to tend;
A journey to tread
A race to run
A long night to endure
Byways to cure;
A future to secure

In the silent night
When my soul and psyche are no more aligned
Shine on me, sunshine
Drench my coat, rain
Be my light and smile,
O ye beautiful sky

When the sky is no more bright
When the stars are out of sight
When the sun is becoming dark
O my world,
Let your prayers be my guide,
And your heart be my smile…
For my life ain’t heaven
I’m not a god without a flaw
Pray for me, pray for me
and be my joy
