Another Tomorrow

Walking home after work late one night

I came across a lonely girl in the grass

She was cut beaten and barely breathing

Bleeding and her clothing was torn

Unable to speak or open her eyes

All I had was the clothes on my back

I had to get her to someone to help

I fashioned a stretcher from tree limbs

Her clothes and my coat to secure her

I began dragging the stretcher behind me

Praying God to help get her to safety

It seemed like an eternity of walking

Seeing the lights still far down the road

I could not signal help because of fear

Becoming very tired and afraid for the girl

I put the stretcher down and prayed

Father please help me carry this weight

I stood again and the weight was less

He answered my prayer and helped

Faith, courage, determination and love

Brought her to see another tomorrow
