Once (For Mary)

Once, when a child,

We cried.

Once, when crying,

We laughed.

Once, when laughing,

We hurt.

Once, when hurting,

We leaned.

Once, when leaning,

We loved.

Once, when loving,

We hugged.

Once, when hugging,

We lived.

Once when living,

We learned.

Once, when learning,

We wondered.

Once, when wondering,

We worried.

Once, when worrying,

We prayed.

Once, when praying,

We thanked,

Once, when thanking,

We cried.
