Oh, to have one thing to start the day,
  a smile to greet the sun

Oh, to have toys as a child at play,
  a field to chase and run

Oh, to have someone to love me true,
  my faults on full display

Oh, to bow righteous before the Lord,
 —with one verse left to pray

(Villanova Pennsylvania: May, 2017)
