In Memoriam

I was going to write some sappy poetry and put it up to mark my daughter’s would have been sixth birthday, but this is much better.

Psalm 102

A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed and pours out his complaint before the LORD.

 1 Hear my prayer, O LORD,
         And let my cry come to You.
 2 Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my trouble;
         Incline Your ear to me;
         In the day that I call, answer me speedily.
         
 3 For my days are consumed like smoke,
         And my bones are burned like a hearth.
 4 My heart is stricken and withered like grass,
         So that I forget to eat my bread.
 5 Because of the sound of my groaning
         My bones cling to my skin.
 6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness;
         I am like an owl of the desert.
 7 I lie awake,
         And am like a sparrow alone on the housetop. 
         
 ……


 17 He shall regard the prayer of the destitute,
         And shall not despise their prayer.
         
 18 This will be written for the generation to come,
         That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.
 19 For He looked down from the height of His sanctuary;
         From heaven the LORD viewed the earth,
 20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner,
         To release those appointed to death,
 21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion,
         And His praise in Jerusalem,
 22 When the peoples are gathered together,
         And the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
