Sometimes people cry, God,
when they are very sad.
Sometimes people laugh and jump
when they are very glad.

Sometimes people wonder
why friends get sick or die.
Sometimes people dream a lot
and really want to fly.

Sometimes people pray, God,
and ask you to be near.
Sometimes people run away
from something that they fear.

Sometimes, God, I want you
to hold me on your knee
like Jesus held the children
when he lived in Galilee.

Sometimes, God, I want you
to speak out loud to me
when I’m in bed, not sleeping,
or by my favorite tree.

Sometimes, God, I want you
to hear my funny joke,
or find the ball I threw too far,
or mend the toy I broke.

Sometimes, God, I find you
in a very special place,
and then I seem to lose you
in the world of outer space!

Sometimes, God, I see you
in the good things people do,
and then I know how Jesus
showed your love to others too.

Sometimes, God, I promise
to live a special way,
so help me be a special friend
for you, God, for today.
