A Prayer for Jim Millar III

“Please dear God, don’t let him die!”
Down upon my knees I cry
“Until he’s well I will not quit,
My sanity depends on it.
This tragedy can’t reoccur,
For now it’s happening to her.
I’ve been through this nine times before.
Don’t let my sins his death insure!
I deserve such agony,
But she is innocence to me.
Do not make them pay my fine.
Do not take his life; take mine!
For if he dies I fail them all.
If he dies I too shall fall.”
