Emergency Preparedness

take a toothbrush

take a flashlight 

take your child’s hand

take your passport

take your prayers 

take your wedding band 

take comfort in 

your sheltered heart

the love you carry within

take comfort in passing time 

your contact list, your breath

take comfort in your packed bag

your ability to plan

though the night is hot and 

you have far to go

you will arrive-- 

time makes it so--

now breathe

now pray 

now take your child’s hand

though the night is hot and 

you have far to go

take comfort in

your sheltered heart

the love you carry within
