A Prayer for a Beautiful Girl
A young sweet girl… could have been my daughter, or maybe a friend’s. In her room, cozy, safe, surrounded by the things she loves.
She had made some kind of prayer flag, fabric, hand painted, beaded, just beautiful. She was wearing it for a headscarf.
I heard faintly, the sweetest voice, singing. Like an angel… think Sarah McLachlan, “Beautiful Girl”, but a capella.
I remember a feeling of peace, but also sending out a little prayer to the universe to keep that beautiful girl safe.
I woke before her door opened to the world of unknown hazards and danger.
I’ll keep this little song in my heart for the daughter I do not have.
