If you must

Bless a baby; bless a union;
bless some holy first communion;
the dead are not in need of much forgiving –
if pray you must, then please pray for the living
 
I understand you’d like a friend,
that nothing scares you like The End;
your need and terror prompt my deep misgiving –
if pray you must, then please pray for the living
 
Who just believes is just a dunce;
trade fear for gratitude – just once:
invoke a god who’s worthy of Thanksgiving –
if pray you must, then please pray for the living
