A Prayer For Those We Love

"Our Father who art in heaven,"
Hear this little prayer
And reach across
the miles today
That stretch
from here to there,
So I may feel much closer
To those I'm fondest of
And they may know I think of them
With thankfulness and love,
And help all people everywhere
Who must often dwell apart
To know that they're together
In the haven of the heart!
