A Prayer

I wanted to be a tidal wave,
washing away the pain of the world,
but You made me a single drop of water
to soothe a single thirsty soul.

So it seems that those big moments –
those explosions of life,
of hope,
of light
in the darkness –
are all created by a handful of sparks
and not just one single flame.

So, make me open and ready
to quench the thirst and light the match
that brings the weary home.
