A prayer of acceptance. Inspired by a night vision in a darkened hospital ward- probably a street lamp outside or a reflection in a window, when all is said and done, but it appeared to be far more significant and otherworldly to me, more than half asleep and wired up to all sorts of machines and drips.



Shining, shining,
Out of the darkness divine,
It is benign-
Then wherefore this deep fear of mine?
It is benign.

Holding, holding,
Wrapped in the future untold,
It will unfold-
Then wherefore this shiver of cold?
It will unfold.

Time is the coin we must spend,
None to put by, none to lend,
Days without ending must end,
Now will be never again.

Praying, praying,
Out of the doubt and delay,
It is today-
Then wherefore the tears on the way?
It is today
