Dear God, thank you for my birthday gift

A little teddy

That just appeared in my small room.

God thank you for your talks with me

Thank you for comforting me

After the bad man goes away.

Thank you God for the warm hugs you give me

After that stranger stops taking off my clothes

And making my body hurt.

God, thank you for my teddy

That always keeps me warm

When the beatings end.

God, thank you for giving me my birthday present

Thank you for taking me

To your castle in the sky.
