A Morning Prayer

by Gene Minx

Dear God, I pray I'll not take for granted today

The daily blessings you give

Like the sweet smell of a flower

or the green grassy hill.

May I not walk at such a pace

That I miss the beauty of the place,

Nor the smile of a child at play

Or the song of the blue jay.

And may I travel not so fast today

That I fail to help someone along the way.
