Lord can you help her please?

She has a drinking problem she does not know the meaning of stop.
She's been to the hospital so many times, she's causing her liver to rot.

She is lucky she is still alive, and to even be able to walk.
But when she's drunk the voice isn't hers when I hear her talk.

Her face isn't the face of my aunt and it makes me cry.
Because she doesn't see the possibility of dying is high.

Seeing her this way is hurting my soul and my heart.
I wish her life could get better or at least re-start.

She's so close to leaving this world and not seeing her family anymore.
She needs to put the bottle down and quit making her liver sore.

I can't stop my eyes from making water falls.
Especially when the hospital calls.

This is a dedication to my aunt marilyn.
I'm going to pray again and again.

    I lived with my Dad's problem and also with my son'e. I love them both but only they can do the changing. Prayer is what we can do. Change must come from them. Vince

    this is a great poem, and i hope & pray that your aunt is better...you have great writing in poetry...i bet, if you were to tell your aunt how you feel towards what happened, and how it hurt you, she would understand why you were sad...i was in a similar situation...the person i knew drank vodka a few times, but she was hurting those around her, even though that was not her intention...she is, i hope, going to keep her promise to stay sober...i pray everything works out for you two...<3 Brittany

    In the precious name of Our Beloveth Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father I pray you create and situation and a circumstance that will cause Auntie Marilyn to stop drinking now. I also pray you release an Angel Of Healing to touch her liver and renew it. In The Name Of Jesus, Cherica and I, Elijah Prophet pray. Amen....... Just Believe This Prayer. So shall it be sister.

    Just try to remember that alcoholism is a disease of the body and mind. Stand firm with your love for her, the rest she must do alone. I will say a prayer for you both.-AA

    Cherica, This is a beautiful, though painful poem. I'm sorry for your suffering at the hands of alcoholism. Your words could have come out of my own daughter's mouth. It was heart-wrenching to read. I have found that poetry can be an alter of dedication coupled with a mountain of relief! Keep up the great writing. It is an awesome outlet! Love, Karen Thank you for your welcomed comment on my sister's eulogy-poem. They wouldn't let me read it at the service...too much truth.
