Today I want to share a poem by E. Johannes Soltermann who is a talented writer, poet and musician.  One of the things he likes to do is play the piano at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport to share his music and love of life.  He is the author of The Gate: A Tale for the 21st Century, and Healing From Terrorism, Fear, and Global War.

One Last Wish

If I’m granted one last wish,

I would spend it on surrender

I would sing out all I can,

pass it to the greater will.

If I’m given one next step,

I’d release it to my heart

let the sorrow be like joy,

let the plan be a first birth.

If I’m blessed with one last sound,

I would open all my doors,

let the music sweep my house

like it never swept before.

If I’m offered one more love,

I will open both my palms,

let go all that came before,

give completely to Your will.

E. Johannes Soltermann
