Evening Prayer

evening-prayerPlease let me never lose my humanity.
Please let me never lose my empathy.
Please let me never lose my open mind.
Please let me never lose my patched-up heart.
Please let me never lose my priorities.
Please let me never lose my patience.
Please let me never lose my perspective.
Please let me never lose my compassion.
Please let me never lose my integrity.
Please let me never lose my humor.
Please let me never lose my creativity.
Please let me never lose my humanity.

And when I do, please let it be brief
and please bring them back one by one
as the ocean brings stones and sea glass
to our searching hands
and empty pockets.
