for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
