Our Better Angels

Say your thanks - love your days - eternity a breath away -
Pray to keep the will to love - your darkest times pass soon enough -
Life that plays no favorites bitter turns the faithless,
Left to curse but random fate, born not of love nor grace -
Love to learn - live to love - your honest best is always good enough -
A quiet role most nobly played transcends the motives of its day -
Freely give as has been given freely to you -
Time is life’s tool, and a true act of love its brightest jewel -
Say your thanks - love your days - a better world our open hearts away -
La la.....
Let our better angels our very lives define -
Each our brother’s keeper - in all things, to forgive, divine -
Say your thanks - love your days - the Best of Shepherds seeks and finds His strays -
La la.....
Let our better angels lift us from a selfish time
To rise to aid the lowest fallen - in all things, to forgive, divine -
Say your thanks - love to learn - Reason’s chosen species takes its turn -
La la.....
Daily trials most dim our focus, it seems -
Lofty visions blurred and smothered between
Page upon page upon page - life’s nature is rote -
To stay a true course begs purpose worthy of note -
Our best is patient and kind - forgiving of trespass, our most near divine -
Say your thanks - love your days - eternity a breath away -
Thankful, keep the will to give - your gift to God a life well-lived.....
