Prayer




(In memory of my cousin Paul Carty who found solace in the words of this poem and whose tragic death has given these words another meaning. November 3, 2012)


Place me on a shore at dusk
By the sea’s healing waters
Where thoughts like boats
Go floating by my mind’s eye
Some circling round
Or anchored to distract
Yet not to hide your Light
My Love


Place me at dusk on a shore
Where the soul’s calm sea
Is stormed and laid to rest
At your command
To contemplate your Light
My Love

This I ask

Amen!
