The Prayer I’ve Never Offered

 I just want you to bring her back to us,
Allow her to be the person she once was.
Let her laugh again because she knows,
Let her smile again because she understands.

I just want you to bring back her foul mouth,
The ones that her friends love and miss so much,
Return her the humour she was famous for,
And the life that is waiting for her up ahead.

I just want her to have what the future holds for us,
I don’t understand why it should be different,
I wonder if you know it’s not fair,
To be cruel to someone so sweet.

I just want her to resume her life,
To continue dazzling us with her stories,
Of the crazy people whom she loves,
And to complete her dreams.
