Found this today, thought I'd share. ----------------------------------------------- A SOLDIER'S PRAYER Dear Lord Please let me have regular dreams like others do Not these nightmares of memory Let my dreams be filled with light and joy Not smoke and terror Let me hear the laughter of children Not the screams of men dying Let the birds fill the air with song Not the sounds of bombs and bullets Let the rivers run pure and clear Not red with blood Let everyone be healthy and whole Not missing limbs and faces Let the earth look as you made it Not scorched and cratered Let me wake up smiling Not searching for the enemy Let the sweat on my pillow be from summer's heat Not the sweat of fear and anxiety but dear Lord most of all I beg you Please don't let my children or their children pray to you as I am doing tonight Amen Written by Maria Sutherland September 16, 1999
