SURPRISE WITH LOVE

POETRY

“Each morn through dazzled window

Anew, the sun above

In bursting, blazing splendor

Surprise me with your love.

“Descending over chaos

An eagle, then a dove

Forth-bringing, powering, filling

Surprise me with your love.

For sunburst, friendship, mercy

In life’s design now wove–

Fresh virgin gifts forever new–

Surprise me with your love.

When my life is done

I’ll wend my way above

Sin-scarred and empty-handed, then

Surprise me with your love.”

–Father James Geoghegan, OCD

“Only for today, I will be happy in the certainty that I was created to be happy, not only in the other world but also in this one.”

–The Decalogue, Pope John XXIII
