For Robby

Written in Memoriam of My Five-Year-Old Nephew

God grant me the innocence of a child.

Let me live in awe of the beauty of your creation, wonder at the sight of a dandelion or robin egg.

Let me appreciate the beauty of a white cloud against a sparkling blue sky.

Bless me with the foresight to live each day as if it were my last, for well it could be.

Let me love with an open heart and express my love with candor.

Most of all, let me never forget to be thankful to you for the blessings I see around me.

If I may do this, I'm sure my life will be fruitful and I will be able to accept its end with joy and no regrets.
