Love With Abandon

Updated on April 22, 2011

Let me love with abandon,

live free of regret.

All the blessings of life

let me never forget.

Let my heart remain tender,

compassionate, true.

Let forgiveness, free-flowing,

each day bring anew.

Let me seek to sow kindness

where none may abide...

Let acceptance abound,

let not judgment reside.

Let my life make a difference,

let love lead the way.

Let me never neglect

a sweet word to relay.

Let me share what’s been given

so freely with joy,

Let the love of The Master

me seek to employ.

Let me love with abandon,

live free of regret.

All the blessings from God

let me never forget.

Amen.

      a poetic prayer, One I think we all need say once in awhile to remain who we are and remind ourselves we are only human.

      Nicely done. I was at a memorial last night and something similiar to this was printed on cards and handed out. (I like yours better though!)
