If you had the task of keeping a fire going
On a cold winter night,
There would be little that is more important
Than making sure there’s enough wood.
Just as communication keeps a relationships alive,
Or prayer keeps a church thriving,
Or providing a service justifies a company’s existence
Or writing keeps a writers pen wet
Or how love holds our humanity together.
There are many things we can do in a day,
But only a few truly hold it altogether.
