Maybe A Prayer

 Maybe a Prayer

Maybe a prayer is just 

looking up once in a while 

and seeing the trees like 

it’s the first time, and

noticing a bird sitting there 

doing nothing but waiting.

And maybe a prayer 

is having a dream

about your childhood home,

and instead of waking up 

crying for what is gone, 

you smile in the dark.

A prayer might be only taking 

what you need and leaving 

the rest for God to handle, 

surrendering your heart 

with all of your heart,

releasing your soul.

A prayer could be happening 

when you are in the presence 

of the people you brought into 

this world, and then the smaller 

people they brought with them,

and knowing you had something 

to do with all of that beauty.
