Heaven Smiles

As a teenager

in the midst of despair

I wrote:

 

“Heaven smiles

but I look up

upside down

and think

it’s a frown.”

 

Now I have learned

through the constant

showers and waves

of love

to straighten my back

stand upright

lift my head

and gaze

into those deep pools

of unending love.

 

This is prayer:

to dare to look up

to dare to speak

to dare to listen

to dare to be loved.
