Our Father’s Valentine

Whenever we say that prayer
We know he is saying it with us
That we are repeating his words
In which he is living always
Whenever they are spoken
His voice remains in the words
As we remain in their speaking
Conscious there can be
No grander reminder
To remain watchful and grateful
Beside your brother and sister
Here on the precipice of evil
And remember our fathers and mothers
Their voices now visions
In the bread we eat
