I ask only that I may love: A prayer as I contemplate Covid-19

I do not ask that my life be spared,
I only pray that in life and in death I may give all I am to others.

I do not ask that my things be spared,
I only pray that I might share what I have left with others.

I do not pray that I may escape the broken heart’s anguish,
I only pray that I may never lose You.

I do not pray that I may live.
I only pray that through all darkness, poverty and death,
I may truly love… and thus

truly

live.
