Dear child I know we’d never met,
I’ve never seen your smile.
But God asked me to pray for you
if just a little while.

I got the news late today,
last night was when you left.
One week was all I had to give
before your final breath.

The Comforter I sent to you
several times each day.
I urged He go with healing hand
whenever I would pray.

His Spirit pressed into my soul
a child I never knew.
From pools beneath two folded hands,
my tears He brought to you.

He said, “With faith, His pleasure’s found”.
Was my faith not strong enough?
Yet from my prayers for you, dear child,
I found a strength in love.

Olivia, I fear I failed,
dear child of only eight.
And now you walk on streets of gold
beyond the pearly gate.

Left with a void I cannot fill
Love found on bended knee.
I ask while walking next to God
if you could pray for me.
