my thoughts and doings to God
and God smiles and waits.
my relationships to God
and again God smiles and waits.
my health and well-being to God
and still the smile, the waiting.
my prayer in silence to God
and even yet the smiling and waiting.
Finally in my poverty
I surrender my heart to God
and there at last is God and my true self
smiling together in peace and love.
