Paddling homeward

You fly to us
across the waves of change;
bring light
-- and dark --
and all the shadows in between;
rough waves and smooth,
stark mountains and lush valleys...

Give us the strength
to paddle homeward,
to trudge along the path
despite the roots
that trip us up,
to climb, and leap,
and ride the waves;
to trust that you
will be there if we fall.
