I heard a prayer today
By Father Pedro Arrupe
Part of it read:
“Fall in Love, stay in love,
and it will decide everything.”
When I was walking home from church,
I started thinking.
Love is what makes life worth living.
Love for my family, my friends,
For school, for theatre, for service.
Love for books and Netflix original series,
For sunny days and warm blankets.
I wake up each day and think
About all the things, people, and ideas that I love
That I get to see each and every day.
And I smile
Because they are all I need.
