Things Of Compassion

I remember, as a child, the things I wished and prayed for.

The things….that I thought I needed.

The things…that I pled with all of my heart to possess.

The things I couldn’t live without.

Through time and things learned,

The things I wish and pray for

The things that I know I need

The things I plead for with all of my heart to have

Are not the things of my youth.

They are things of time,

Things of life,

Things of compassion,

Things of love.
