A little prayer

A little prayer to the child that never came

A little prayer to the father that died in the flame

A little prayer to the mother that in grief exclaim

A little prayer to a time not long ago

Before you had to go

I wanted you to stay

But they took you away

Will I ever learn
How to be when it’s my turn?

Will you have saved me then?

Amen.

Marcus Lagercrantz
