day 26

Protect me, O God, for in
         you I take refuge.  Psalm 16:1

may we be
   the umbrella
      for those
      showered by hate;
   the cradling lap
      for children who
      tremble in the night;
   the heart hollowed by grief
      so we can embrace
      all who have lost everything;
even
as you are all
         this (and more)
   for us.
