13. Katrina Katrina

from VAL'sWriting.Com

Katrina Katrina what will we see
The catastrophic damage you possess
My prayers are continual for all in your path
Dear Lord grasp those put through this test

Each moment goes by as they flee for their lives
Taking all of their loved ones to safety
Your winds extend with vicious bands
Oh Lord help them through this travesty

Know sweet souls that we pray for you
Across our nation in prayer we unite
Katrina a name on many in prayer
God grant us the will for this fight

Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons
Families scurry for safety and security
Grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins
God please guide them with Your purity

If they must go, gently take them in Your arms
Please Lord don't let them suffer undo pain
They are our friends and relatives
With them numerous angels you'll gain

I pray Dear Lord with all of my heart
Katrina please calm down
Lord please watch over all in her path
As Katrina touches ground

I really enjoyed your poem. I could feel your pain as this mighty hurricane bore down on the gulf coast.
