TWO PRAYER-POEMS FOR ST. VALENTINE’S DAY


YOU AND ME TOGETHER

If there is too much ME, there is too little YOU

Yet I know that Love if it is to be true

Needs the gift of letting be;

If there is too much YOU, there is too little ME

Still I know that Love as it works towards being true

Has the eyes fixed firmly on WE.

ST. VALENTINE, PRAY FOR US

In our teens and 20’s: in our yearning and longing

In long term togetherness: in our hoping and trusting

When hard times come: in our waiting and enduring

When hairs turn grey: in our gratitude, and, with luck, still yearning and longing.

Love is a grace and a challenge day by day.

We try to say ‘Please’, ‘Thank you’, ‘Sorry’, and sort out anger by bedtime.

St. Valentine, pray for us, in all the seasons of our Love.
