Jealousy for a young girl would soon turn
Wishing selfishly that her newborn brother
Would never be.
Through coincidence and reasons only God knows,
A brother dies,
Believing in her heart and mind that her bad
Thoughts are to blame,
She travels far, high upon a mountain where closer
To god she might be.
Tired, so very tired as she lays herself down upon
The mountain ground,
Before she sleeps, a prayer she makes to God for
Her brother's life in place of her own.
When the morning light shines this child awakes
Covered in warmth and a man with a smile,
Where did he come from as he asks how she slept
And a bowl of hot porridge offered to her.
He asks of her journey there, he is a most unusual
Sort of man who appears to possess much wisdom,
She speaks of her conversation with God as he listens
With a look of great understanding.
"What is your name she asks" I am Jonathan! this is
My mountain and you are far from home,
I wanted to be as high as possible so that God would
Hear me when I said I was sorry.
Listen child! It's not your fault, he has made
His decision, your brother with him, you with your
Was this a miracle that a father found his daughter
high on a mountain, was he shown the way,
Where was Jonathan, was he an angel? she shared
time with him, never again was he seen.
