Garden of Light

from the book Healing Light

May each day of my life

be like a drop of rain

That touches the earth

with no intent to gain.

May my ideals be like roses

in a garden of light

That extend to the sun

with true valor in sight.

May my actions be as bright

as a buttercup of gold

That grows in green fields,

small yet bold.

May my heart be like the pine

in a forest of trees

That stands steady and whole

despite pain that bereaves.

May my soul be like a star

shining aloft in the sky

To radiate beauty and love

beyond the day I die.
