Christmas Prayer

Let my prayers rise before you, Lord,
as this candle flame,

my love,
as steady burning
to you in its votive glass,
unseen, perhaps, but by a few
pausing on pilgrimage
at this trail-side stone chapel door,
to remark among their own
candled prayers

a kindred flame,
a fellow pilgrim
passing on before.
