day 90

"Hear my prayer, O LORD,
   and give ear to my cry;
   do not hold your peace at
         my tears.
For I am your passing guest,
   an alien, like all my
         forebear."  Psalm 39:12

whether our hearts
      can only whisper
                  or
   we are swearing
   at the top of our
               lungs,
         you listen;
whether we are
dressed for the prom
                  or
   wearing our
   faded hand-me-downs,
         you welcome us;
whether we can
      pull out a
      multipage genealogy
                  report, or
   just arrived,

we are your
      children.
