Dear God Above (My First Poem Written When I was 9 Years Old)

This was my first attempt at writing.  I wrote it when my father died when I was nine years old.

Dear God above to thee I pray
To tell you my problem at the end of this day.
I sure do hope that You can hear
because it's about my Momma dear.

You see Daddy died.
A man we all love
but I guess you know that
since he's with You above.

Well anyway God
it makes Momma sad
and to see her that way
really makes me feel bad.

So send Momma a message
and seal it with love.
Well good night Heavenly Father
Dear Lord up above.
