Christina A. Sharik: Dear GodMy daddy left to go to war
I really don’t know why;
mommy says we’re proud of him
and that we shouldn’t cry.

Dear God
I’m just a little child
but I hope you’ll hear my plea;
If I promise not to cry too much
will you send him home to me?

Dear God
I have another worry
and I hate to bother you –
Help me and grandma both be strong,
‘Cause mommy’s going, too.
