O brief beacon, goddess of transition:
Smile upon me as i speed
On my way, i know not where.
Remember to bless and to forgive,
As i promise to thank you
With a wink in my rearview mirror.
i further promise,
With my whole, hurried heart,
That next time, i will slow,
It is you, not those above or below,
In whom all time reposes,
By whom all grace is given,
Through whom all who mindlessly rush
Either make their appointments
Or meet their Maker.
To you i send solemn thanks,
Toward you my prayer does rush
With rapid pulse measured on dials;
A thin slice of the day is all that is granted you,
And from it, you fashion worlds.
i thank you for the small moment
That opens onto the rest of my brief life,
And leave a trail of blessings behind me,
Scattered and rustling beneath
