May God E’er Turn Your Head

~ for Sara C, who’s battling cancer ~

May God e’er turn your head
To show you gorgeous flowers
May peace e’er fill your heart
Throughout your darkest hours

May God e’er lift you up
And keep your body strong
So that your Earthly time will be
Like summer days, prolonged

And Sara, may you always know
How many souls you’ve kissed
Your smile, a shining star
Your love, a golden mist

And may the rest of us take heed
No matter where we roam
That life’s a gift; we’ll never know
When God might call us home

– Paul Raworth Bennett
