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.
