A Prayer For Your Future
May you get a clean bill of health from your physician,
your psychiatrist your plumber and the IRS.
May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall;
and may your blood pressure, your cholesterol,
your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.
May you find a way to travel from anywhere to anywhere
during rush hour in less than an hour,
and when you get there may you find a parking space.
May what you see in the mirror delight you,
and what others see in you delight them.
May someone love you enough to
forgive your faults,
be blind to your blemishes, and
tell the world about your virtues.
May we live as God intended, in a world at peace
and fully aware of the Love
in every sunset, every flower’s unfolding petals, every baby’s smile,
and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our hearts.
