day 64

When you walk, they will
         lead you;
   when you lie down, they
         watch over you;
   and when you awake,
         they will talk with
         you.  Proverbs 6:22

with each step, may
      i place my foot
      in the imprint left
      by compassion
   following it to care
         for others;
in the silent hours of
the night, may
      i curl up
      in hope's
   lap;
in the morning, may
      wonder and joy
   leap into my bed
         yelling, 'get up,
   sleepyhead! it's a new
day!'
