You can never give
So much of yourself
That you are no more;
Nor can you give
More than has
Already been
Given for you.

All you can do
Is look around
And hope you can see
What you might do
For a soul
Who needs a friend
Or simply wants
A warm embrace
And a simple place.

You can never repay
The debt you owe,
But by warming
The heart of another
You draw closer
To the Healer of Souls.
So each morning
Give thanks
You have another chance
To serve the Shepherd
By looking for His sheep.
