PRAYER FOR A DAUGHTER

PRAYER FOR A DAUGHTER

My daughter has gone to march today;
She's hitched a ride to the USA.
She may be wrong, she may be right,
It's not her country, but it is her fight.

My daughter has gone to march today;
I am on my knees and starting to pray.
Much could go wrong, friends have warned
God keep her safe as she nears the storm

My daughter has gone to march today;
Does it really matter what I might say?
She's heard a call from beyond the fray
To speak for justice come what may.

My sister has gone to march today,
Much older than just yesterday.
Once but a child and I a man,
And still we stand hand in hand.

My mother has gone to march today;
Much wiser than her yesterdays.
The child I held at her sweet birth,
Is now in step with Mother Earth.

Oh mother, daughter, sister, child,
Be careful in this world so wild!
Your father ever prayerful still
Blesses you to do God's will.
