If I Could…

If I could just read
one more book
then maybe I would 
why babies are allowed to perish
tornados permitted to ravish
the lives of hard-working good-natured folk.
If I could just memorize 
one more prayer
then maybe I would 
be worthy
of consoling the grieving one
attracting men to the Son, 
to grow in His unending Love.
If I could just live
one day through
without worry of things
of what it all means,
then maybe I could rest
in the peace His Love brings.
