“My Prayer,” New Era, Nov. 1985, 51
I guess all I really want to say is
I don’t want anything.
I don’t need anything.
Except to let you know that
I appreciate you.
for creating rainbows after thunderstorms.
And for make such an essential thing
Thank you for creating a universe so immense
that I cannot begin to imagine all the beauty within,
and for leaving a few questions unanswered,
for me to ponder.
for making people of so many different sizes and colors
and for teaching us all to smile in the same language.
for giving us four seasons each so different and unique
that they seem new each time around
well … just thank you for the chance I have to start
all over fresh each day.
for making such a perfect world
and for letting me borrow a corner of it for just a little while.
Most of all,
Thank you for listening.
