Prayer Answered



In this fleeting moment, a prayer finds its way,
Learn to love, learn to live, learn to give each day.
See, it’s not so tough, this journey’s gentle sway.

Embrace grace, inhale favor, and in joy, stay.
Let love’s tender whispers light the darkest night,
In its warm embrace, find solace, pure and right.

Live each day with purpose, in love take flight,
Embrace the dawn’s promise, in its gentle light.
 Give freely of your heart, let kindness reign,
In the tapestry of life, weave love’s sweet refrain.

Through the highs and lows, the joy and pain,
In love’s eternal dance, find peace again.
