A Prayer

“A Prayer,” New Era, Sept. 1998, 26

A Prayer

A prayer, two smiles,

a familiar door.

A plan, a truth,

help them understand.

A whisper, it’s right—

do they feel it?

A glimpse, a hope,

a young family in white.

A step

“Will you … ?”

A leap

“We will.”

A burst, an embrace,

smiles and tears.

A prayer, hearts dance

with the snowflakes outside.
