A father's prayer
My son turned seventeen.
Now it's Him and the World,
and his parents in between.
Lord, give me the strength
to get through two more years.
Help me to keep him alive
and hold back his mother's tears.
Stan Sýkora 1995
You need to be a parent to appreciate this one.
If you are a parent, it needs no comment.
