Wishes on an Autumn Afternoon

I want peace for every aching heart
I want hope that holds although it knows not
I want strength of mind to remain unchanged
in the face of twisting turns in the crooked hands of time
I want to trust the old faiths of my heart are enough
to once again find
that this soul within—
has beauty still existing inside…
