My soul

Father,

You are everything
To me –

My food and drink,
My way, my truth, my goal;

My life and breath,
My suffering and death,

My love,
My soul.

Become one with your love.

To drink them in.

Often silent;

Sharing food, and drink,
And love
With all we hail –

For whilst
I’m one with you,
I will not fail.

Depends on our relationship
With you.
