Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 8/23

There must have been a time
when such innocence was mine,
when I found my joy in simple gifts
as simple as the rain...

Such a time there must have been
though I've no memory of it now
nor of the joy I may have found
in raindrops falling on my face...

Is it too late now to hope
to find such simple joys again?
Is it too late now to lift my face
to catch a raindrop's kiss?

Restore, O Lord, my innocence,
my joy in simple gifts and
give me back a child's soul
one cloudy, rainy afternoon...
