God’s Music

“Each one of us is merely a small instrument; all of us, after accomplishing our mission, will disappear.” ~Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

God’s Music

I pour milk
into cereal bowls,
wipe tears,
play cards

I pour water
into small glasses,
wipe the table,
play games

I wrap blankets
around little ones
shivering cold
from the bath

I wrap prayers
around hearts
shivering cold
at day’s end.

It’s time
to know our own needs
and know the needs
of each other.

It’s time
to pour, wipe, play,
and wrap,
to make music, to give back.
