Poem: Love Prayer

Love Prayer

Fill me.
With your spirit.
With your love.

Help me find what is missing.
Help me turn your confidence
into mine.

Change my silence into the roar of lions.

Remake me.
Change these bones to iron
and my blood to fire.

Remind me that I was not made to fade away,
but for greater things
than I have allowed myself.

Plant my roots in you,
deep and wide,
strong enough to stand firm in the storms.

Help me
live
again.

About this poem

Could be a prayer to God. Could be to a lover. Could be the plea of children, women and others in abusive situations.

You choose.

Tom
