And our immortal soul.

In return

 

You gave all you had for us: 
Body, blood, life,

So what can we give
In return?

Only our love for you,
Poured out each day, to all –

That’s what we’re here 
To learn.

Written on the day of my first Holy Communion

 

Lord, 
From today, I turn my face away
From all the harm
My mother did to me,
Remembering it no more.

Instead, 
I call the positives to mind, 
While thanking you
For bringing good
From all I have experienced in life.
