if I can leave one patch of earth richer, more fertile, more alive than it was when I found it

if I can equip just one young person with the skills they need to survive this vast complicated life

If I can make one older person feel that their life experience and advice is precious, valuable, to me

If I can support and strengthen just one community by being part of it

If I can give myself precious time and space and silence to write my poetry in, whether any one else reads it or not

If I groom and feed and exercise and love all the dogs who ever live in my circle to the best of my ability

If I make my home a warm safe welcoming place for all who enter it, including me and Paul

If I spend precious time and energy weaving, repairing, sustaining links to my tribe so they know I love them and I know they love me.


And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah



That will have to be enough in the end
