A Day

A Day
By: William L. Stidger
What does it take to make a day?
A lot of love along the way.
It takes a morning and a noon,
A father’s voice, a mother’s croon;
It takes some task to challenge all
The powers that a man may call
His own: the powers of mind and limb;
A whispered word of love; a hymn
Of hope–a comrade’s cheer–
A baby’s laughter and a tear;
It takes a dream, a hope, a cry
Of need of brotherhood and love;
A purpose sent from God above;
It takes a sunset in the sky,
The stars of night, the winds that sigh;
It takes a breath of scented air,
A mother’s kiss, a baby’s prayer.
That is what it takes to make a day;
A lot of love along the way.
May we all learn to use well for God’s glory the days that we have been given!
