child's lament

dear heaven 
too soon to ask for forgiveness I know 
so bless me change my thought 
bless me change my habit 
bless me change my heart 

dear heaven 
too afraid to ask for challenge I know 
so bless me be more strong 
bless me find more love 
bless me understand this place  

dear heaven 
too hard to be glad at times I know 
but thank for all my excess 
thank for all my self 
thank for all my tragedy

It's a fine poem, but the middle of each stanza it seems that the sentences are incomplete, or not punctuated properly. I'm no expert, but clarity is what we're after. 'Bless me change my habit'. I read this sentence twice, wondering whether the word 'to' was missing between 'me' and 'change'. Otherwise, It's a good poem. My poetry is never finished.
