Honeymoon prayer

Single Woman's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep.

 

I want a man, please not a creep

 

Send me just one, perhaps like dad

 

Not like the ones that I've had

 

   

 

 One good man who's sweet as pie.

 

Who comes home at night and doesn't lie.

 

Who dresses neat and combs his hair

 

Who when I'm in need he'll be right there

 

 

 

Until I meet this Mr. Right

 

I'll be alone in bed each night.     

 

My simple prayer will always be

 

That I'll wake with him next to me

 

             

 

But if I should die before I wake,

 

There won't be a wedding cake

 

Nor wedding vows or honeymoon.

 

No anniversary every June.

 

   

 

The single life is kinda nice

 

If I get married I'll pay the price

 

I'll wind up with a brain-dead troll

 

Who'll always hold the remote control

 

 

 

This single life works for me

 

I can be who I want to be

 

I won't need to fix my hair.

 

So never mind this stupid prayer.

I was inspired by the title that I read somewhere else, but the poem is all mine. I like surprise endings this one gives you that
