Teach us to love

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.”

~ Kahlil Gibran ~

Lord, help us see each other for exactly who we are

Then have the courage to embrace what we see

Sharp edges and all

                                   *

Help us find all the ties that bind our hearts

Pour ourselves into strengthening them

Fasten us together

                                 *

Give us steady hands to wipe tears

Biceps to squeeze one another

Strong abs for belly laughs

                               *

Expand our hearts to contain each other

Our minds to more fully understand

Grace to accept

                              *

Lord, grant us the wisdom to appreciate

Every moment we have together

And the moment to say good-bye
