A Prayer Poem for the Fulfillment of a Desire

A prayer, dear one,
to love myself
as I love my children
fully, wholly, without condition.

A prayer, Lord,
for healing.
May old wounds heal
leaving only soft scars
to remind me how the soul survives.

A prayer, Buddha,
for continued mindfulness,
and practice in the arts of
compassion, metta, and
equanimity.

A prayer, love,
that I may remain open
to the depth of longing,
open to the release of passion,
open to the freedom of honesty.
