Prayer at Close of Day

At the end of day

The sisters gather round

Adoration of the Lord and then night prayer

All is silent

A chapel like a shroud

Wraps around the day about to end


And I at 75

The evening of my life

Come back to my beginning

And the Lord

Nothing further matters now

Just the love of God

It answers all my questions

The road that I trod


I knew it

In the morning of my days

How good the Lord

How pleasant are his ways

And then the struggle happened

The journey that we make

It now subsides

And all is for his sake
