Prayer of a Second Wife
By Vesta Nickerson Fairbairn
Dear understanding God, help me be wise
To sense the past and present interlacing,
To know the moment to be self-effacing,
To feel when love unveiled should fill my eyes.
My heart needs time to learn, to recognize
The subtle changing moods of one replacing
Old designs with new, while still embracing
Sacred memories. Help me be wise!
