Poems From The Porch

This is My Prayer


Heart of my Heart,

Love within and without,


You show me what it means

to be committed and to receive fidelity

from a life partner and lover.


You send friends to celebrate my joys

and to console me in grief.


You give me the opportunity

to be a vessel of Light,

equipping me with talents

and satisfaction in their utilization.


The banquet of my life

is laden with abundant

provision and comfort.


I am humbled

by my dependence on You

and by your unfailing sustenance.


There is no more that I could ask,

no more that is required.


Yet I pray to have eyes that recognize these gifts,

ears that hear Love’s sweet refrain,

and hands that remain open

to give and to receive.
