PRAYER
God – our heavenly Father.
Oh, God – and my father
Who is also in heaven.
May the light
Of this flickering candle
Illuminate the night the way
Your spirit illuminates my soul.

Papa, can you hear me
Papa, can you see me
Papa, can you find me in the night

Papa, are you near me
Papa, can you hear me
Papa, can you help me not be frightened

Looking at the skies
I seem to see a million eyes
Which ones are yours
Where are you now that yesterday
Has waved goodbye
And closed it's doors
The night is so much darker.
The wind is so much colder

The world I see is so much bigger now that I'm alone.

Papa, please forgive me.
Try to understand me.
Papa, don't you know I had no choice

Can you hear me praying,
Anything I'm saying,
Even though the night is filled with voices

I remember ev'rything you taught me
Ev'ry book I've ever read.
Can all the words in all the books
Help me to face what lies ahead
The trees are so much taller
And I feel so much smaller.
The moon is twice as lonely
And the stars are half as bright.

Papa, how I love you.
Papa, how I need you.
Papa, how I miss you
Kissing me goodnight
