Jonny Lost His Father

Little Jonny lost his father
And he feels abandoned and alone
How could God make such a big mistake like this
Taking Jonnys’ father before he turned just six
How will he go to Cub Scouts
With just a mother, he’d rather not
And who will  pitch the baseball
When he gets his brand new bat
His father was his hero as he tucked Jonny into bed
Ready to fight the boogie man as he searched the closets and under the bed
Who will help to bathe the dirty dog 
After they’ve wrestled in the mud
That’s a job that takes two strong men
Because Rebel fills the whole tub
Little Jonny is confused, heartbroken and dispaired
Oh, dear God in Heaven this really isn’t fair
I promise not to whine, scream, cry and sometimes pout
I will always make my bed, comb my hair and rise early to let poor Rebel out
Little Jonny bowed his head as he kneeled down to pray
He prayed more little promises and asked if God would change his mind today
He vowed he’d keep his word as only a five year old can do
Jonny asked if only God could hurry and answer
Because he was running out of time
He needed desperately his hero father for the boogie man at bedtime
