Poem for meditation

10 May 2020, 8:30 a.m.

In my journeying with you,

may I never lose

my sense of direction,

never lose sight of the landmark

towards which I travel.

And should cloud or rain

obscure my vision,

may I draw closer to you,

so that my feet may tread

in your footsteps,

your words be my encouragement,

and your love my protection

against the storms that assail me.
