“The Lord is merciful and gracious,
    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Psalm 103:8

when we are callous
towards others, model
for us what softies are like;
when we turn churlish
with the ones we love,
transfigure us with
your tenderness;
when we are quick
to fly off the handle,
cradle us until we learn
the peace of patience;
when our hearts are
empty of love, fill
them from that fountain
of yours which never
runs dry
