My existence is but a breath of time.
Will I squander it with envy, anger, and pride?
No, may my days be numbered
by love, good deeds, and contentment.
May I pass through this life
leaving footprints of laughter,
the scent of joy,
tastes of kindness,
music of faith,
visions of truth.
May I touch all
with the golden sun
of God’s love shining through me.
