A Poem For Those Who Must Slow Down

By September 20, 2016Poetry

A prayer Leighton has appreciated as he recovers from surgery and is able to walk without pain again.

The Gift

Be still, my soul, and steadfast.
Earth and heaven both are still watching
though time is draining from the clock
and your walk, that was confident and quick, 
has become slow.

So, be slow if you must, but let
the heart still play its true part.
Love still as once you loved, deeply
and without patience. Let God and the world
know you are grateful.
That the gift has been given.

~ Mary Oliver
