We’re gonna need you next year

For some of us
All we could do this year was survive-
Simply not die.
And if you make it to the other side
We’re gonna need you.
Your ear to listen
Your heart to care
Your arm around weeping shoulders
Your hands in service
Your pen to that paper
Your lips to that mic
Your knee bent in proposal
Your hands lifted up in prayer.
We’re gonna need you next year
And don’t let anyone tell you
Otherwise-
Especially yourself.

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
-Psalm 90:12
