The Gift of Love--By Suzanne Clement--United States

The Gift of Love

O Lord, I ask I may not be
A stumbling block to those I see
As I live out my earthly life
In daylight hours or hours of night

And not be rude when I converse
By using fresh or hateful words
Or words that hurt or criticize
Or that will cause people to cry

Or do deeds that are bad to do
For that will not bring joy to you
But speak and act in ways of good
Since that is the way I should

Suzanne Clement is a writer from Dover, New Hampshire.
