A prayer poem as Roger Federer’s career comes to an end

All things end, God.

You alone are permanent.

All good things,

all bad things,

all things end, God.

Some endings we choose,

some are forced upon us,

all things end, God.

Some endings we welcome,

some we seek mightily to avoid,

all things end, God.

May the awareness of endings

lead us

to live fully in the moments we have,

to love boldly the people with whom we share life,

to enjoy wholly our experiences.

May our awareness of endings

inspire us

to love kindness – now,

to do justice – now,

to walk humbly – now.

And to do so in every now we have.

For all things end, God.

Amen.
