I Pray, Some Day to be free from all of this Pain

I Pray
Some Day
to be free from all of this pain
Free from the thief,
that has come 
since 2001
to steal my body away;

I Pray 
Some Day,
that this Lupus
will just go away;
but I know it won't go
it keeps me in the throws,
with my organs, it just wants to play.

I Pray 
Some Day,
For Christ to please 
find his way;
to please lay his hand
and heal this man
so I can get down on my knees when I Pray!

    A powerfully poignant piece. I see your pain daily and wish I could take it all away! I believe that God sends those things that are not always pleasant to us to make us into better people so that we can be of help to others that may not have the inner strength to deal with that sort of pain. Lay it all at the cross sweetie. Just continue to do the best that you can!! Leave the rest to Him~((HUGS))
