grant me time enough

to do all the chores, 

join in the games, 

help with the lessons, 

and say the night prayers, 

and still have a few moments left over for me.


Energy enough

to be bread-baker and breadwinner, 

knee-patcher and peacemaker, 

ballplayer and bill juggler.


Hands enough

to wipe away the tears, 

to reach out when I’m needed, 

to hug and to hold, 

to tickle and touch.


Heart enough

to share and to care, 

to listen and to understand, 

and to make a loving home for my family.
