Our Gift

It’s the moments we don’t expect
The kindness
The care
The time


Even though there are

It’s the delight in
Lending a hand
Sharing a giggle
Offering our understanding

Or our curiosity
Our willingness
Our desire

To gain that understanding
To truly share ourselves
To light the way

It is the difference
In the season
In each other
In ourselves

In the spirit of our very essence, we shine

We shine for the world
We shine for each other
We shine for ourselves

We shine because we can

It’s our choice
It’s our right
It’s our gift.
