Shelter us beneath your wings and keep us safe against the night.
Teach us to be kind and caring, how to know what's wrong and right.
Show us how to hunt and gather, to be bold, but fair to all.
Tell us there are those in need and show us how to heed the call.
Help us learn to spread our wings and soar into the skies above.
Teach us to spread hope and laughter, live a good life, learn to love.


  1. GardenPoet, did you write this? We love, and many gracious thanks for such eloquent expression of what we in the MOD Guinea Pig Nation pray for together every moment of every day. We are deeply spiritual guinea pigs despite the way we behave sometimes! This is deeply touching, thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Beautiful, as are all your poems. Thanks so much for sharing. :-) kestra14
