Teach Me to Pray, to Praise

Teach me G~d to pray

 

to praise





The splendor of ripe fruit


   the wonder of a wrinkled leaf

the freedom to see
  
to feel
  
to breath

   to know hope
    
      and even to know grief.

Teach my lips blessing
   song
   and praise

when You renew Your time
   each night
   each dawn

so that my days will not repeat my yesterdays
to save my life from mere routine
   of all days gone.
