As we leave this community of the spirit

As we leave this community of the spirit

Richard S. Gilbert

As we leave this community of the spirit,
May we remember the difficult lesson
That each day offers more things than we can do.

May we do what needs to be done,
Postpone what does not,
And be at peace with what we can be and do.

Therefore, may we learn to separate
That which matters most
And that which matters least of all.
