Let’s Hug Them In Our Prayers
( A Prayer for the Little Afghans)
 
Let’s hug them in our prayers
the wailing innocent in fears
encircling them sweetly
Sending tender kisses unceasingly
caressing their unblinking weary eyes.
 
Let’s hug them in our supplication,
Reassuring the cubs with adoration
serenely touching their unguarded emotion,
fervently caress in their agitation,
and empathy with their affliction.
 
Let’s hug them in our prayers,
They are the purest of souls
Shuddering, they couldn’t play gaily with their dolls,
Teach them lovingly the ABC’s of Hopes, and
the juggling numbers to entrusts their cares.
 
Let’s hug them in our prayers,
intertwine them in our dreams,
in every life’s pause and commas,
quench their tears and sorrows,
cover them with the warm blankets of unextinguished Hopes.
 
Let’s hug them in our prayers,
every second and in every hour,
magnified petition to the Almighty in heaven
to send the cherubs and the angels
to be vigilant and watch them over.
P L E A S E!
Let’s hug them in our prayers.
