Benediction To A Core Values Class Of Military Basics (1994)

Poem By Bill Grace

If the abiding issue is both war and peace
And I love you as my children
Having given nothing of this frame to last
My gift to you must be stronger than death,
More desirable than chocolate,
More lasting than the kiss or bite of history's moment.

So in benediction
May you know a peace
Greater than success
More powerful than happiness
Enduring as life itself
That ever in wholeness your spirit may dwell upon this earth
And jump the life to come.

Keep it simple
So the past can find you
The love you lacked the courage to love
The one who was kind

Small your light
It takes the glow of many
To mark the night.

In Texas God once turned a street to gold
and as an after thought - stretched soft textured air across a continent -
so subtle was the miracle that no one noticed.

Much as one might observe
Deer feeding undisturbed.
