Teach Me To Pray


When I am alone

I find a resting place

inside all my desires

beyond all my concerns

in the midst of the darkness and light

that are One.

How I miss the inner stillness

when others are near.

Can I find my way there

in the midst of a crowd,

around trusted friends,

in the presence of beloved family?

Lead me Home.

Teach me to Pray.
