Morning Prayer

May I be worthy of all the universe brings to me today,
from the icy dew on the grass
to the gentle light in the eyes of our grandchildren.
from the million mile journey of sunlight
to the caress of my Mary,
from the support of earth beneath my feet
to my head in blue sky air.
And at the end of the day may I look back and say,
yes, what I have done today has been worthy
of all the universe has given to me.
