sacred temple walls, hushing the
tumult of worldly cares, focusing
on my relationship with deity,
on blessings awaiting me above.
Be still my heart, courage for the
battle that is called daily life, for
the lessons yet to be learned
through earthly experiences only,
soon it will be over and then.
Looking back I'll understand
why it was necessary-the ups
and the downs, the choosing in
each day. Not easy, but worth it.
Not alone, you are by my side.
