Heart Prints

-Whatever our hands touch
!We leave fingerprints
On walls, on furniture
.On doorknobs, dishes, books
.There's no escape
.As we touch we leave our identity

Oh God, wherever I go today
!Help me leave heartprints
Heartprints of compassion
.Of understanding and love

Heartprints of kindness
.And genuine concern
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter
Or an anxious mother
.Or perhaps an aged grandfather

Lord, send me out today
.To leave heartprints
,And if someone should say
I felt your touch
May that one sense YOUR LOVE
Touching through ME
