A Quiet Place - Poem by Beverly J. Sweeney

Sweet breath of life, gentle wind of God,
Guide me softly as I walk on this earth.
Fill my eyes with the wondrous beauty of life.
Let them sparkle and shine with joyful glee.
Let my wings take flight and let happiness
find a quiet place within me.

Let me know life's most precious treasures;
A child at play, sunshine upon my face,
Laughter, a kind word, a loving embrace,
Memories of a happy past; deep faith.
Fill my cup with love and let happiness
find a quiet place within me.

Let me be peaceful and full of grace.
Give me mother's milk, the magic potion,
A warm and soothing, loving lotion. Save me
From common discontent. Keep me on my path,
Loving bent, God sent, and let happiness
find a quiet place within me.
