On Long Roads

Kyrie Yeshua

For gnarled hands bent
in prayer
by supplications and rites bent
by 60 years of travel down long roads bent

For old children
With young hearts

For old children
With faith etched on their hands
and heads
and joy-drenched faces

For old children
bent toward you
as towering oaks toward the sun

We your young children give thanks
