How do you do it?
Opening your heart time after time?
Allowing in those that society rejects?

How do you continue to pray even when food runs out and there’s no money for milk?
How do you believe in Heaven when Earth is in despair?

Oh, Teresa, my friend, God’s arms are so tightly wrapped around you in the deepest Love.

You are my hero, you know. My heart is your heart.

Teach me the utter acceptance for humanity.
Teach me strength so that I will never fail.
Take my hand and lead me on.
Show me how I can believe like you.

You bring me to my knees, Teresa.
